Taste of Amsterdam
When: 2 – 5 June 2016

Het Hoofdgerecht
When: 9 till 12 June 2016
Where: Het Stenen Hoofd, Westerdoksdijk, Amsterdam
What: Previously you always needed a ticket for this food fest. This has held me back for those few years. Plus the location is actually the dog park for all dogs, including mine. Maybe I’ll take a look this year ;)

Bacchus Wine Festival
When: 10 to 12 June and 17 to 19 June (twice!)
Where: Het Amsterdamse Bos
What: A wine and food fest in Het Amsterdamse Bos where you get to party and enjoy quality wine and good music.

Pop-Up Picknick at the Park
When: 30th of June
Where: Amsterdam Vondelpark
What: Two food bloggers Lotte from Culi-Amsterdam and Amsterspots organise the  ultimate picknick in the park! Get yourself a picknick basket for €50 for two people, pick a place in the Vondelpark to lay down and enjoy! Let’s all dance for great weather. PS. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, they have a plan B!

When: 14 till 17 July 2016
Where: Amstelpark in Amsterdam
What: A really low key and gezellige food market with cool trucks and new stands. Last year was a big success, busy in a cosy way. I really look forward to visiting this food festival. Plus a reminder for people with dogs: you can’t bring them to this festival. Believe me, we tried once before. During the week it starts at 16.00 pm and in the weekend at noon.

Are thinking of going to one of these food festivals? If so, hope to run into you ;)
