King's Day is the national holiday on which the King's birthday is celebrated. Everywhere in Amsterdam people are celebrating while they are dressed in orange. Orange is the dutch collor. You can find Flea Markets, parties on the streat and especially lots of partyboats in the Amsterdam Canals. All the canals are full of boats with dancing and singing people. Often there is even a trafic jam of boats in the canals. Join the party, and don't forget to dress in orange :)
It is also possible to go to a festival on King's Day. If you want this, please be aware that you should purchase the tickets a few months/weeks in advance.
Rollende Keukens is some special event. The sun is (most of the time) shining, people are happy, and share all one thing; love for food! During the festival of Rollende Keukens, you can enjoy food from different foodtrucks that are standing at the Westergas terrain. Not only can you enjoy all different types of good food, there is plenty of choice in drinks as well! Some great wines and beers, but also soft drinks for the younger visitors.
What makes Rollende Keukens nice, is that every foodtruck has their own theme in which they present themselves. Therefore, the whole terrain is one happy get-together of lovely dressed people and colours.
After choosing some nice dishes, you can enjoy live music that is also at Rollende Keukens. Have a look yourself when you are visiting Amsterdam in summer!
Every last Friday of the month is the chance to go shopping in the beautiful historical centre of the city. You can shop your daily groceries, or buy beautiful interior and fashion products.
If you are done with shopping, there are many options to stay for a drink or something to eat at Nieuwmarkt.
This market was created to function as a meeting place for the local householders and the entrepreneurs to hopefully recreate the vibe of ‘nice, fun, and cosy shopping’.
For a good feeling on your Friday night, visit the hart of the historical city!
At the Parade more than 80 theater, dance and music performances for young and old play. Most of the performances were made especially for the festival and can only be seen this summer. Every day there are different performances. These last on average of 30 minutes, so you can easily see two, three or even four shows on one evening.
In addition to the evening performances, there is an extensive ChildrenParade in the afternoon with theater performances, music performances and workshops. Every night two live bands play at Hotel Vilé and Katrina, where you can go for free.
Performances that are suitable for non-Dutch-speakers are indicated with a LNP logo (Language No Problem).
For the openings hours, check the website because it might be different for each city. Moreover, you can buy performance tickets online or at the Parade itself.
Since its first edition in 1975, SAIL Amsterdam has grown to become the largest public event in the Netherlands and the largest free nautical event in the world. Every five years, more than 600 ships navigate along the North Sea Canal before mooring in and around the IJ-haven in Amsterdam. The ninth edition of SAIL Amsterdam takes place from 19 to 23 August 2020.
Feast in the magic of maritime and nautical heritage with your family, friends and colleagues. After all, the Netherlands’ rich history of seafaring and ports are still an essential driving force for its economy. So come out to welcome the Tall Ships, historic Dutch vessels and modern ships alike, and make the most of the big and small events taking place in and around the IJhaven.
