The creative Sunday market

A street and a parking garage full of arts and crafts, design, fashion, authentic food, drinks, performances, dj’s, books, accessories and surprises

20th of September

from 13:00h till 22:00h

Spuistraat 219 / Wijdesteeg

free entrance
ParkArt is an market for creatives in the city centre where artists and designers exhibit and sell their work. You can drink a coffee or a beer, eat some home-made food and stroll through the diverse stands with fashion, vintage items, design and art. Besides the stands, there is a combination of music, performances and street theatre that feels like a festival. On this Carless Sunday, ParkArt takes over the parking spaces both in the parking garage and on the street and creates a platform for surprising, innovative and creative ideas. In keeping with the theme of a Carless Sunday, we try to pay some extra attention to creative ‘healthy and green’ alternatives.

ParkArt derives from the plans for an ArtMall in the Tabakspanden. These plans have been initiated and are now being further developed by Langgewagt (residents and users of Spuistraat 219). In collaboration with De Key and the Amsterdam Municipality, Langgewagt is investigating the possibility of developing the Tabakspanden as a future permanent place for arts and creativity. One of the ideas envisions a market like ParkArt occurring on a regular (perhaps weekly) basis.

This second time that this kind of creative market is happening in the parking garage is organised by Langgewagt. Last March's Artmarket was organised by Afarai.
