    EuroPride Park

    Two days after the opening of the Pride Village, the starting signal will be given in front of the Votive Church on Friday, 14 June. This year, for the first time, a park area with a stage and a restaurant will be set up here. A lot of fun is guaranteed in the unique setting of the Sigmund-Freud-Park.

    EuroPride Parade

    Instead of the legendary Rainbow Parade, this year's EuroPride Parade will sweep across the Ringstrasse in Vienna. On 15 June, 200,000 participants in colourful make-up will parade anti-clockwise around the city centre on painted floats with loud disco music. "The other way round" and together against discrimination and intolerance. The parade starts at 12 noon between the City Hall and the Burgtheater. After once round the Ring, the parade will end at the EuroPride Village for the EuroPride Celebration in front of the City Hall.
