The nicest theater festival of The Netherlands is almost back in Amsterdam at Martin Luther Kingpark in Amsterdam South and you want to go here! For two weeks straight you can visit around 60 theater, dance, mime and music shows in various theater tents during De Parade Amsterdam 2017. Besides that, you can eat at several food trucks and hopefully enjoy the sun with friends. Most of the performances are made especially for the festival and can only be seen on De Parade Amsterdam 2017. Every day there are various shows that you can visit. These shows last about 30 minutes, so you can visit two, three or even four shows on one evening and get surprised every day again. Nice, we know what we’re doing in August! 

Ps: they also thought of the kids. Every afternoon there’s a children’s parade with theater performances, music performances and workshops.
