WorldPride Square

Hundreds of thousands of people will join us in City Hall Square during Copenhagen 2021

WorldPride Square

The setting for our Opening and Closing Ceremonies and nine nights of speeches, entertainment and performances, WorldPride Square will be the focal point for all of Copenhagen 2021.

Rådhuspladsen, or City Hall Square, is 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 raised 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 marketplace booths, and food and drink traders to keep you refreshed.

Opening times

WorldPride Square will be open from midday every day from Friday 13 August until Saturday 21 August.

Opening Ceremony

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.


WorldPride Square will come alive every night from Friday 13 to Saturday 21 August with free concerts with world-leading talent and performances. From drag to Eurovision, big bands to a-list artists, we are producing an incredible line-up of entertainment.

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.
