With the weather turning colder and the Nexflix evenings started, it’s also time to start preparing for the festive season and Amsterdam has a new Christmas Market coming up!
Previously held at the Kromhouthal in Amsterdam North, the Amsterdamsche Kerstmarkt lands on the iconic Westergas near Westerpark for the first time. A new and free Christmas fair transformed into a winter wonderland, with (live) music, food and drink, market, children’s activities, a cool cultural program and a big party every night!
Christmas comes early this year
The Amsterdamsche Kerstmarkt is going to be a place where you can pre-celebrate the holidays with friends, family and colleagues. But it’s also the place for traditional Christmas shopping for those gifts under the Christmas tree. In addition, you can check out various music performances, DJs, food trucks, children’s activities and ice-skate. Furthermore, there is an extensive cultural offer, with Cineville and the Ketelhuis that offer a movie program, and Jägermeister organizes a Christmas karaoke. Love it!
In total, the Amsterdamsche Kerstmarkt will last for four-days and has been created for and by Amsterdam; co-creation is key. Together with creative entrepreneurs, non-profit, art and culture makers. But also high-profile brands, local parties and food pioneers, the organisation is building a Christmas party where everyone feels at home.
Founder Brent Roozendaal says: “With the Amsterdamsche Kerstmarkt we are organising a new type of Christmas market; one with a full program. A free event including a beautiful city festival. Both for visitors and a cultural message for entrepreneurs, creatives and the city.
We can’t wait for this Christmas Festival!
20th – 23rd December, Westergas
