Saturday - Kwaku festival in the Bijlmer

This annual Festival in the Bijlmer is a celebration of this Amsterdam neighborhood music and culture and takes place over 4 weeks in the Bijlmerpark.

There are of course performances from several local and international bands and DJs,  but also a football tournament (considering the amount and skills of Dutch national players hailing from here, you're almost certain to see some excellent footie), debates (today for instance about the roles of fathers and mothers in kids' upbringing), literary awards and beauty contests.

The entrance is moderately priced at 2,5 euro and apart from the usual fries and kroket stalls, expect to find loads of delicious food from Suriname (bara being my own personal favourite), the Antilles and the Caribbean.
