Holland is all about festivals, you know that. However, for kids it takes a bit more work to find out what’s really cool, especially at the end of the season. We had a look for you and came up with a shortlist of kids friendly festivals. All our munchkins really want to do is run around with other munchkins, right? So, we looked a bit further than Amsterdam and found some awesome events scattered all over the country.
1. Mini Theatre at Parade Amsterdam
This festival is a delight for young and old. The Parade has a very divers theatre programming and acts especially suitable for kids too. Categorised from all ages up to 6+. Have a look at the website. The Parade is in the Dam from August 11 till the 27th. Most is Dutch spoken.
2. Country Kids at Tuckerville
If you are into Line Dancing, Gospel and Country Music this is for you. Tuckerville in Enschede is all about the Amaricana sound. Where? Enschede, at the border of Germany, mind you it’s a 2 hour drive from Amsterdam. If you’re feeling adventurous go check the website. It’s set in a beautiful lush green area and a very kids friendly festival.
