The setting for our Opening and Closing Ceremonies and ten nights of speeches, entertainment and performances, the WorldPride Square will be the focal point for all of Copenhagen 2021.
WorldPride Square is in Rådhuspladsen, or City Hall Square, right in the center of Copenhagen. It’s a five minute walk from Copenhagen’s Central Station and has its own station on the Metro. Just off the Square is Regnbuepladsen, or Rainbow Square, where Copenhagen erected the world’s first permanent rainbow flag just a few years ago. And City Hall itself is where the world’s first same-sex partnership took place back in 1989. This Square is part of our DNA.
As well as the WorldPride Stage, the Square will also host booths for civil society and non-governmental organisations, and food and drink traders to keep you refreshed.
WorldPride Square will be open from midday every day from Saturday 14 August until Saturday 21 August.
We’ll officially open Copenhagen 2021 with an evening of entertainment and speeches on Friday 13 August. We’ll announce the schedule for the evening in due course.
The Closing Ceremony will take place after the WorldPride Parade on Saturday 21 August and will feature speeches from leaders, performances from community members and high-profile artists, and we promise you an experience you will always remember.
The Closing Ceremony includes the official handovers of WorldPride to Sydney 2023, EuroGames to Nijmegen 2022, and EuroPride to Belgrade 2022.
