The Wilhelmina Living Room festival is a very special neighbourhood event because of its homely backdrop, really cosy or 'knus'. It's a very Dutch event that we really recommend if you are visiting the city and want to experience the local way of life.
The neighbours at Wilhelminastraat in Amsterdam Old-West open their doors to showcase their local talent - be it theatre, singing, live music or poetry. There is a show on the hour and a street BBQ with live music, perfect for meeting new people and mingling with the locals. The events take place in someone's living room, in a personal setting with only a limited amount of spaces available. Family's sing, local theatres open their doors and even neighbourhood shops and establishments set the stages to local talent.
Cycle around the neighbourhood with a glass of wine in hand like a true local! Or it's a short tram ride away from Yays Zoutkeetsgracht and Yays Bickersgracht.
