The aptly-titled Vrijheidsmaaltijd (‘Freedom Feast’) will take place in restaurants, parks, living rooms, streets, public squares, churches and other weird and wonderful city locations on 5 May.

Shared dining experiences

Each year, Amsterdammers (and visitors) are invited to participate in the Freedom Feast as part of Liberation Day, bringing together diverse groups of people to dine and enjoy the feeling of freedom. This year's event is set to take place at some 200 big and small locations around the city, so there's no excuse for not getting involved.

Freedom Feast on the IJ

The biggest event is the Freedom Feast on the IJ, which hosts 1,000 diners at a 300-metre long table, but there are plenty of other Freedom Feasts going on. And, of course, you're still welcome to host your own Freedom Feast, be it for friends, family or soon-to-be friends.

Street Dinners

In various Amsterdam neighbourhoods, Amsterdammers can also get together for Street Dinners. Bring the tables outside and have dinner with your neighbours! To buy a ticket or register for hosting your own, visit the Street Dinners website.
