Street Parade Zurich –

Let Your Hair Down!

Streetparade Zurich

Saturday 10th August 2019

Motto: “Colours of Unity”


StreetParade Zurich

This year Street Parade is taking place on Saturday 10th August and the theme is Colours of Unity. Regarded as the world’s biggest techno party, people flock from all over Europe to attend this free event. It will certainly be entertaining with more than 200 artists attending, playing on a number of stages throughout Zurich and on around 30 Love Mobiles too! The Love Mobiles are large floats which pass through town (the centre of the city is closed to traffic) playing loud music with people dancing as they go by.

The Swiss may appear quite staid most of the time, but when it comes to Street Parade they sure know how to party!  Not only do many people dress up in costume, paint their faces, wear masks and wigs, but the event is full of music, DJs, dancing and fun. It does tend to get very busy though and crossing the bridge from Bellevue to Bürkliplatz is something you cannot do in a hurry!

In fact all the streets tend to get very packed and the floats are buzzing with music followed by hundreds of dancing and singing revellers. So if you plan on having fun on Saturday 10th August why not go along, get dressed up, let down your hair down and enjoy?
