Copenhagen 2021 is getting ready to create the greatest LGBTI+ event to ever take place in Denmark and Sweden, when EuroGames and WorldPride kick off in August 2021. The preparations for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of EuroGames are well underway.
True to tradition, the opening ceremony of EuroGames presents all nationalities with a Parade of Nations, but this time the opening ceremony will set itself apart from similar, more traditional, ceremonies.
In order to deliver a ceremony that is worthy of the athletes, Copenhagen 2021 have chosen to take the Parade of Nations to the streets of Copenhagen. Starting at the EuroGames Sports Village and heading over the water to Copenhagen City Hall Square, we will walk one mile together in nations. This might be the proudest mile in the world.
On 21 August, Copenhagen 2021 will say goodbye and hand over the EuroGames baton to the hosting city of 2022, Nijmegen in the Netherlands.
The closing ceremony of EuroGames, will take place along side with the official end of WorldPride. The joint closing ceremony starts with the Pride Parade from Frederiksberg to the WorldPride Square in front of City Hall in Copenhagen. The EuroGames participants will walk together, but will divide into sports disciplines across nationalities.
The Parade itself will have a concept of its own and will end at the WorldPride Square, where the traditional part of the ceremony will be taking place.
