A people's Europe and a Europe of the people: the EUROPEADE. Europe at its best!
The 55th Europeade will be held in Viseu, Portugal.
While no stranger to grand spectacles, Europe’s festival circuit also caters to the more personal. And Europeade is one of those more intimate festivals on this list!
We have done all that is necessary to comply with the new regulations, see ‘Europeade ivzw - Statement in connection within GDPR’
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.
We are committed to the preservation of our intangible heritage of regional folk culture, be it music, dance, song, or costume.
