TIP: August 4 till 6 you want to go to the new NDSM Food Festival 2017

24 July 2017

NDSM Food Festival, a special foodtruck festival in North

Yes, there’s a brand new festival coming at one of the nicest summer spots in Amsterdam; NDSM-wharf in North. From August 4 till 6 the NDSM will be transformed into a food festival where you can enjoy a weekend full of snacks, drinks, musical performances, theater and more. The foodtrucks at NDSM Food Festival serve the best dishes, but also add something to the festival. Every foodtruck adds an amazing band, old Dutch games, (cooking) workshops or a nice exhibition. This sounds so cool! We can’t wait to discover the festival and do some foodtruck hopping.

In the coming weeks NDSM Food Festival will announce which foodtrucks we can find on the festival and some names are already exposed. Think of the burgers of STACKS, last year they won the 24Kitchen Foodtruck Award, the cocos balls from Madame Cocos and the tapas, quiches and desserts from Peperwortel, the restaurant on the Overtoom. Ps: There will also be a vegan foodtruck!

So every foodtruck adds somethings nice to the festival, but besides that there will be a stage where you can enjoy live performances from well-known and less well-known artists in the category soul, jazz and classics. Nice, is it August already?
