A summer full of food festivals is slowly winding down. We had pure food festivals like the Holland Food festival and Taste. And many of the cultural festivals like the Amsterdam Roots Festival and De Parade put much focus on food.

The annual Amsterdam Grachtenfestival that presents classical music from floating stages on the canals is next in line. From August 15 until 21 there will be several food specials spicing up the classcial music.

The Amstel Bar & Brasserie of classy Amstel Hotel serves a €49,50 festival special where you can enjoy dinner on their terrace by the Amstel while listening to the Waakvlamconcert. The special will be served August 17 to 21. And on Thursday August 20 both Restaurant Fifteen and FOAM will serve Grachtenfestival specials.
