Especially for you there is a super nice list ready, so you never have to get bored. Read on, before you might miss your highlight.

Pride Amsterdam
The first weekend of August Amsterdam is the Pride capital of the world. From the 27th of July until the 4th of August Amsterdam colours completely pink and every day there is something to do to give the LGBTQ+ community a stage. To top it all off, there will be the famous 'canal parade' on Saturday August 3 and Sunday August 4. In short, something you really don't want to miss!

Adventure in space
Go on an adventure in space at Artis! You can watch a live performance here during the whole month of August from 14.00 to 14.30. In this performance, young children will discover how the galaxy works, what a dark starry sky really looks like, and how you can find the Big Dipper, for example. After the performance, they will even be launched into space like a true astronaut!
