Uitmarkt opens cultural season in Amsterdam
Annually attracting more than 450,000 visitors, the Uitmarkt is one of the country’s most popular cultural events and the traditional opening of the cultural season. The festival features more than 300 performances across 30 stages. From classical to kid-friendly, hip-hop to dance and theatre to jazz – there’s something for everyone.
Family fun and more
In addition to performances at the festival’s large outdoor venues, there’s also the Manuscripta book market, Uitmarkt Junior for the kids and an abundance of information booths and stands. Because all the artists and organisations involved volunteer their time, the Uitmarkt has managed to remain a free festival.
