From June 16h-22nd in the Global Sharing Week, the Vondelpark Open Air Theatre presents a programme packed with festivals, dance, cabaret, children's theatre, stand-up comedy and all genres of music.
Amsterdam's Vondelpark is steeped in musical and theatrical heritage. The 'Vondelpark Parties' were organized in the park and the Music Pavilion and Vondelpark Stage both hosted music, operetta and dance performances over the years. The Vondelpark Open Air Theatre sprang into life in 1974, combining the 'Vondelpark Parties' and so-called 'Happenings', the name given to the performances organized at the time.
Nearby, and still within Vondelpark are a couple of cafes and restaurants such as the Blauwe Theehuis and Groot Melkhuis, each with their own wonderful aspect to watch the passersby. The park also is a popular destination for tourists on rental bikes and picnickers in the summer.
