EuroPride is an annual recurring event, where a Pride Festival in Europe is entitled to use the title EuroPride. EuroPride is an international event that attracts visitors from all over Europe. In 2018, EuroPride is being conducted in Sweden for the third time, and for the first time with two cities as organizers. During EuroPride 2018, the event is jointly organized between the two festivals Stockholm Pride and West Pride. This will challenge the concept of EuroPride and create a festive event that lasts three weeks, linking Sweden's two largest cities together, Stockholm and Gothenburg. The European Pride Organisers Association (EPOA) holds the rights to the title EuroPride and grants the license of “EuroPride” to a different member each year. EPOA is a network of European gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender Pride Organisations. EPOA was founded 1991 in London. The purpose of EPOA is to promote lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Pride on a pan-European level and to empower and support local and national pride organisations in their efforts of planning and promoting pride celebrations. EPOA also wants to facilitate networking and skill-sharing among members.
