Kwaku summer festival in Amsterdam 

Standard

So every year in Amsterdam they have thus festival called the Kwaku festival… And from my understanding it’s for the freedom of the slaves that where Brought here. So it’s like how you have african americans in America… In Amsterdam they have the surinams(which is basically the slaves that where brought to thus country) and every year they get to celebrate their freedom. 

At the festival they have food from all sorts of countries like Brazil, Nigeria, Ghana and so many different countries. 

It goes on from 15th July till August 6th…. 

Now the fee to enter is €4 for adult and €2 per child under 12yrs old. 

And you can use credit card to pay entrance fees but only cash is used inside. 

The music is set up at different locations with people performing on stage. Pretty fun… 
While walking to the festival I came across an apartment that had a flag bagpack at the window so I asked my cousin about it and he said in Amsterdam when someone finishes college they hang that at the window to show that someone has graduated in that home. It’s such a beautiful culture that I think will motivate kids to want to go to college and do their best. 

So will share that picture on this page too…
