On Saturday 27 August we will transform Meer en Vaart at the Sloterplas into a landscaped boulevard with stalls. On this day we show what Osdorp and Nieuw-West have all! With food and non-food stalls from residents, local entrepreneurs and organizations. There are also various children’s activities and in the evening there is a talent show. Everybody is welcome!
The Osdorpse Zomerboulevard is an initiative that was published last year at Buurtbudget Nieuw-West and which many residents voted for. This event is organized in collaboration with the initiator, residents, Different Event-s and the municipality of Amsterdam.
Inspired by Barcelona
Initiator Arjen found his inspiration for this Summer Boulevard all the way in Barcelona: “Barcelona also has a very accessible market. Everyone can join. I thought it would be great if we could also organize this at the Sloterplas. The organization was not nothing. But we managed to put down a nice program, even with a talent show. I look forward to this cheerful approach to summer!”
