Europeade 2020 – Together Virtually

Antwerp, Belgium – The International Europeade Committee and their technical team are happy to announce the imminent beginning of the Europeade in its first virtual version, Europeade 2020 – Together Virtually.

The Europeade, the biggest folk festival in Europe, gathers 5000 dancers, musicians and singers from all over Europe in a different city every year.   It is the only such festival in Europe, and the biggest! 

From August 5th to 9th, the annual event originally planned to take place in the Lithuanian city of Klaipeda will be replaced by a virtual meeting, Europeade 2020 – Together virtually, fitting into its normal 5 day programme of shows, parades and balls. Hundreds of groups from Portugal to the Baltic States, from Cyprus to Scotland will share a unique moment of culture and friendship and invite you to join in.

Stay tuned for a detailed programme that will be published just before the event and can be followed on our website www.europeade.eu* and Facebook page*.

Together, let’s beat the disease and quarantine lockdown, and gather for a unique 5 day experience to share the culture of Europe in all its diversity. Come and support our participants and enjoy the show!

Let’s make the cultural heart of Europe great together!

Europeade 2020 – Together virtually

Antwerp, Belgium – The International Europeade Committee and its technical team will present Europeade 2020 – Together virtually, a virtual gathering of 200 folk dancing groups featuring 5000 dancers, musicians and singers from all over Europe taking place on its web site and Facebook page August 5th to 9th.

The 2020 Europeade will appear online in place for the real one planned this year in the Lithuanian city of Klaipeda for the 57th time and cancelled in its live version due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Since 1964, the Europeade has gathered every summer thousands of folk dancers and musicians from the whole of Europe in its rotating festival held in 34 different cities in more than 20 countries in Europe. The Europeade, member of “Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe”, is the biggest folk dancing gathering on the continent, taking place every year in July or August in a different city, in a different country, to be closer to the cultural diversity of Europe. It is important to note that, in spite of its wide European participation (22 countries involved in the 2019 edition) and its important role in the defense of local cultures and traditions, the organization receives no financial support apart from the host cities and the fees paid by the individual participants.

“The Europeade is a moment we all wait for” says a participant “because it allows us to show and share our traditions with the rest of Europe, meet other traditions, make new friends every year and live 5 days of fun”. 

“Unity in diversity” is the logo of the Europeade. We are happy to make this message accessible to all through our website  and Facebook page. More information awaits you there.
