58ste Europeade zal plaatsvinden in Gotha, Thüringen, DE

Dear friends of the Europeade,

the memories of the last Europeade in Gotha are still fresh – even if it was around ten years ago. We are happy to return in 2023 and look forward to a wonderful celebration of European culture with many unforgettable moments.

Since its beginnings in the 1960s, the Europeade has focused on international understanding and European friendships. The common motto "Unity in Diversity" therefore not only stands for five days of dance, song and music, but for the wonderful Europe in which we live.

Year after year in a different city, we send a strong signal for peace, freedom and cultural diversity in Europe. In addition to the colourful costumes, fascinating dances and songs, it is above all the people who make Europe and the Europeade what it is. Their close friendship is an expression of the European spirit and has made the Europeade the largest folklore festival on the continent.

Experience and enjoy this friendship and diversity of European cultures with us in Gotha – warm invitation!

Rüdiger Heß

President of the International Europeade Committee
