Street Parade

An annual 3 day event in Zurich where everyone comes to party, enjoy good food, drinks and music! It’s one of the world’s largest techno parties!

Considering that people all over Europe travel to Zurich for this street parade, it’s surprisingly one of the safest mass events in the world with everyone here to promote love and peace through dance. Drugs are also not welcomed!

The Street Parade is still after all a demonstration that calls on everyone to live together in peace and tolerance. A demonstration that celebrates the joy of life with electronic music.

The 2.4 km–long Street Parade route begins at 3.15 pm at Utoquai in the Zürich neighbourhood of Seefeld, from where it will head around the lakefront via Bellevue, Quaibrücke and Bürkliplatz, arriving at Hafendamm Enge at around 10 pm. The fun will continue at the after-parties at Opernhaus, Bellevue, Bürkliplatz, Rentenanstalt and Limmatquai until midnight.

Everyone was outrageously dressed and very willing to pose for pictures. A wonderfully fun crowd and boy can some of them dance! My favorite is a goth guy who techno dance was mesmerizing! You can view it in the video at the end of the post.

The photos and the video pretty much says everything!

Here’s my video of the street parade! You can also view it on youtube at
