Cultural fun for everyone
Head to the Open Air Theatre in the Vondelpark to catch unique summertime performances. From 5 June until 8 September 2019 you’ll find a lot going on every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Entry is free, although all voluntary donations are appreciated. During May and September 2019, there are special events, markets and one-off festivals taking place.
Amsterdam’s Vondelpark is steeped in musical and theatrical history. The ‘Vondelpark Parties’ were organised in the park and the Music Pavilion and Vondelpark Stage both hosted music, operetta and dance performances over the years. The Vondelpark Open Air Theatre sprang into life in 1974, combining the ‘Vondelpark Parties’ and so-called ‘Happenings’ – the name given to the performances organised at the time.
