Virtual Europeade 2021!


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.
