on the Zeedijk
Amsterdam, Noord-Holland

Much smaller than the Gay Pride is the " Hartjesdagen" festival right in the Nieuwmarkt area on the Zeedijk. The third weekend in August men turn up as women, and women as men. And they have been doing so for centuries! Some historians believe this fun packed romantic festival dates back to the Middle ages. Its small scale is a definit plus.
