Spring is in the air! Crocuses and daffodils are in full bloom, giving us the promise of more flowers and longer days that will invite us to avoid the couch a bit more and go out to see and do nice things. March is a month full of spring celebrations, but also packed with many events here in Amsterdam. As I do every month, I selected a couple of these events to share with you. From markets to exhibitions and from movies to gardening, I think the list of this month has something for everyone!

Let’s dive into this curated monthly selection of things to see and do in Amsterdam in March 2024!

Women in Art 2024 – between 1-10 March in De Hallen, a series of workshops, talks and exhibitions promoting women’s role in photography and illustration. There will be outdoor exhibitions too, in Mercatorplein and Westerpark.

Public Tour of International Theater Amsterdam – on 2 March. Every first Saturday of the month you have the chance to join the public tour (in English) of this amazing building, see parts of it that you don’t normally see when you go for a show and hear its story.

Improv Spectacular, International Women’s Day edition at Boom Chicago on 8 March. For improv lovers, this is a chance to celebrate the brilliance of women in comedy.

Femtopia 2024, at Pakhuis de Zwijger on 8 March. Celebrating women and the work of countless feminist organisations and individuals in the field of equal opportunities. There will be a mix of workshops, talks, performances, in English and Dutch.

The Circle of Truth – an immersive journey beyond theatre. Premieres on 7,8 and 9 March at DOOR OPEN SPACE on NDSM. This promises to be an interesting experience, if you like participating in the show instead of just sitting on your chair and watching.

Cinemasia Film Festival, on 5-10 March at Studio K and Rialto. The festival brings bring the best of contemporary Asian cinema to the Netherlands, but also seeks to help support the stories of the Dutch Asian diaspora.

Reclaim the Seeds, on 16 and 17 March at Fruittuin van West. This is for all (urban) gardeners out there, who want to exchange seeds and attend talks on political themes, lectures and workshops on topics regarding seeds and sustainability. Also, a good opportunity to learn about various cool initiatives in Amsterdam.
