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.
We are committed to the preservation of our intangible heritage of regional folk culture, be it music, dance, song, or costume.
"Europeade - International Association for European Folk Cultures" (www.europeade.eu) is an International non-profit association under Belgian law which aims to: promote unity among European peoples in a friendly atmosphere, by encouraging cross-border contacts between practitioners of folk culture.
Under the name "Europeade", the association organises annually and each time in a different European city, a five-day international festival of folk music and folk dance, under the motto "Unity in Diversity" in which some five thousand dancers and singers participate.
If your group wants to participate in future editions of the Europeade, you can use the form as a request for participation.
Registration will start on 05-01-2023 and run until 31-03-2023.
