A people's Europe and a Europe of the people: the EUROPEADE. Europe at its best!
Europeade is a five day party for 5,000 dancers, musicians and singers.
It is not just an event. We create European friendship and unity through our diversity.
Europeade is an independent annual meeting of 5,000 people involved in folk dance and music from all over Europe. We meet for a week in summer every year, often in a new city in Europe, old friends and new groups together. We show our dances in displays in large arenas and in the streets of the city, and hold a ball, a parade, and an oecumenical service. Groups dance, sing and play their music in costume throughout the city all day and all night! We share our regional culture with the local inhabitants and each other.
Europeade is now part of the EFFE festival community, facilitated by the European Festivals Association, which consists of festivals that stand for artistic quality and have a significant impact on the local, national and international level.
