Kwakoe Festival, Bijlmerpark, Zuid-Oost Amsterdam

Kwakoe @ Bijlmerpark, Zuid-Oost (metro stop Amsterdams Poort, then a short walk to the park), FREE, starts this weekend and continues every weekend until the August, not specific activities for kids although a very colorful, musical, delicious place to visit.

This is a must do, especially if you are a food lover!  Kwakoe is the annual summer festival, often referred to as a multi-cultural festival- namely celebrating Surinamese and African traditions - food, music, activities, stands and fun.  In the middle of the festival is a football field where you can watch various teams compete while enjoying a Djogo beer, delicious bbq and music.  

Why go? You have eight weekends to figure out how to fit this festival, but really it should only take a sunny day to convince you to drop everything and head to Zuid-Oost.
