In Amsterdam each year several events take place on the canals.
These events are characteristic for the city of Amsterdam and impressive to experience from the water. Sloepdelen offers the opportunity to immerse yourself in the atmosphere and be part of the party.
Kingsday: 27th of april, Kingsday, is known nationally and internationally as the biggest party in The Netherlands. The festivities are centered in Amsterdam, where hundreds of thousands of people gather to have a wonderful day. The canals will also turn orange that day and to be honest, the party might be even better from the water…
Next Kingsday will take place on april 27th 2017.
Gay Pride: Love knows no race, age or gender. To celebrate this diversity and especially homosexuality, every year the Gay Pride will take place in Amsterdam. The twentieth edition of ‘The Amsterdam Gay Pride’ will be from july 23rd until august 7th 2016; the well-known Canal Parade will take place on august 6th.
Prinsengracht concert: One of the annual highlights of the summer in Amsterdam is the ‘Prinsengracht Concert’, a spectacular classical music show on the canal in front of the Pulitzer Hotel. The beautiful music, combined with the intimate atmosphere that lingers between the canal houses creates a truly unique experience. The coming Prinsengracht Concert will take place on august 20th 2016.
If you want to experience the events first class, we advise you to reserve on time, these days are in high demand and booked far in advance!
