On the weekend of April 29-30, the Greater Ridgewood Historical Society and House of Yes invite their cherished communities to a celebration of Dutch culture and the beginning of spring at The New Amsterdam Festival taking place at the historic Vander Ende-Onderdonk House in Ridgewood, Queens from 11am-9pm daily.

Coinciding with Dutch springtime festivities including Holland’s King’s Day (April 27) celebrated nationally and Tulip Festival (April 14-May 4) in Flevoland, The New Amsterdam Festival will see the grounds of the Vander Ende-Onderdonk House covered in rows of flowering tulip bulbs and orange-themed decor and accompanying performer outfits.
