unique summer festival in Amsterdam

It’s one of a kind: de Parade. When this travelling festival builds up its tents, gipsy carts and other mobile stuff, a special world is created. Filled with performances, dance, music, comedy and anything in between from beautiful to weird.
It has an atmosphere of circus, mardi grass but also medieval, fairy like and yet very trendy. It is hard to describe, that’s why you should go there check it out yourself.
Probably you will not visit a performance at all and just sit at one of the many terraces of the restaurants and café’s. There you can get almost anything from cocktails to sustainable tab water and from pancakes to sophisticated dishes.
While sitting there, watching everything and everyone at the festival, you will be seeing (and be a part of) a theatre play in itself.
