Welcome to the Europe of the hearts!

A people's Europe and a Europe of the people: the EUROPEADE. Europe at its best!



The International Europeade Committee proudly presents
Europeade 2020 – Together virtually

Antwerp, Belgium – The International Europeade Committee and their technical team are happy to have presented Europeade 2020 – Together virtually, thanks to your support.  We showed our traditions, of costume, colour, dance and music to a large audience

From the 5th to the 9th, thousands of virtual participants have animated this beginning of August with their passion for their heritage and their desire to share it with as many people as possible 

We want to thank you all for your support. We strongly believe that this constant effort, developed since the 1960s by folk dancing groups from Europe, has brought a magnificent image of a different Europe, united in its diversity.

Now is time to say goodbye until the summer of 2021 and the following years’ events, planned in Klaipeda in Lithuania, Trapani in Sicily, Kielce in Poland, Gotha in Germany and Saaremaa in Estonia. To know the exact venues and dates, keep following us on our website www.europeade.eu* and Facebook page*. More information awaits you there.

What is the Europeade?

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.

About Europeade

We are committed to the preservation of our intangible heritage of regional folk culture, be it music, dance, song, or costume.
