Events in Amsterdam Calendar

Autumn

Get down as the city turns to gold at the Amsterdam Dance Event, the biggest club fest in the world. With over 2,000 artists performing in over a 100 of the city’s very best clubs, as well as an abundance of conferences and networking opportunities, ADE offers a great 5-day music spree in mid-October. This Amsterdam event that is not to be missed!

Summer

March to the rhythm of your own beat at one of the most popular events in Amsterdam, the Gay Pride, held in early August each year. Enjoy a peculiarly Dutch variation on pride floats, with the Canal Parade. Here, dozens of rainbow boats filled with DJs and majestic drag queens bob up to the Prinsengracht as onlookers cheer from alongside one of the city’s most famous canals.

Spring

It doesn’t get any more Dutch than tulips. After all, this is a country that experienced a ‘tulip mania’ so frantic in the 1600s that the price of tulips skyrocketed (in one month, the price increased twentyfold!) creating one of our first economic bubbles. One of the most colorful events in Amsterdam, The Tulip Festival, generally held in May, aims to put hundreds of thousands of tulips in the streets of Amsterdam. Also check out the incredible Keukenhof gardens, one of the world’s biggest spring gardens. Blooming good fun.

Winter

Fireworks on the canals, champagne and enough merriment to spark a fire - it doesn’t get much better than New Year’s Eve on the Dam Square. NYE starts early, on December 30, and it only ends when, bleary-eyed, you chow down on a hangover-brunch or lunch at one of Amsterdam’s many cafes.
