Copenhagen: 13 - 19 August 2018

Copenhagen Pride Week is taking place right in the middle of August. This is a unique week that celebrates diversity, community and love - whatever your sexual orientation might be.

What's on during Copenhagen Pride Week?

Denmark's main Pride event is a colourful festival that takes place in central Copenhagen every August.

During the course of the week, there are free concerts every evening, as well as debates, pop-up shops and lots of joy, love and happy people dressed in all colours of the rainbow. The week ends with what many people regard as the main event - the Pride Parade. Find out more about Copenhagen Pride here, and check out the Facebook event for Copenhagen Pride Week 2018.

The year's most colourful celebration will focus on equality and promoting the idea that everyone should be able to be who they want to be regardless of their sexual preferences. In addition to Copenhagen Pride, there will be other Pride celebrations in a number of Scandinavian cities. Happy Pride!


During the course of the week, there will be numerous exciting events that will focus on diversity, equality and queer love:
