We have made quite a few changes to this year's edition of Antwerp Pride, and the route of the parade is one of them.

This year the parade will start off with a celebration on Sint-Jansplein. The actual parade starts at the Paardenmarkt and end at the Gedempte Zuiderdokken, which is also the new location of our Love United Festival.

Why start the parade at the Sint-Jansplein, you say? Not only is it one of the largest squares in Antwerp, it is also a wonderful melting pot where many different nationalities and cultures come together every day.

That makes it the perfect location to kick off our parade, as Antwerp Pride embraces and celebrates diversity in all its forms. We aim to include all the people of Antwerp in our celebrations.

So please join us for the official kick-off at noon, so we can all start the parade together in high spirits. There will be a big truck with an awesome dj and a kick-ass sound system waiting for you, and the bars and restaurants on the square will make sure you don’t go hungry or thirsty before the start of the parade.

We are grateful for this new opportunity and are excited to celebrate Antwerp Pride with all of you and the residents of Sint-Jansplein!
