The "i am not a tourist" Expat Fair is all about having an informative and above all enjoying day. That is why we have arranged some great entertainment during the day! For example...
The Library - 'Meet the locals; Tasting European wines.'
Every hour on the hour, we will taste wines from different European countries and regions. We will tell you all about the history, the grapes, the cultural differences and of course taste the wines! We will pair them with some local (Dutch) delicacies. We only have space for 24 people every tasting, so be on time! We can't take reservations. Come meet our Library Club at Stand 30!
Uiltje Brewing Company
Enjoy one of Uiltjes great beers at the Expat Fair. They call it craft-y beer because the owl’s got a sharp, uncompromised tongue and a penchant for mischief. Sounds good to us!
Amsterdam Magic Show
The Amsterdam Magic Show is an ensemble of magicians who have amazed corporate clients as well as the Amsterdam public in sold-out shows for the last year and a half.
Now you have the opportunity to see the magicians at the Expat Fair - Things that make you go huh.
Step into our magical world of ‘Huh’ and forget your daily routine for a moment.

Extremos Salsa will give a 30 minute Salsa class! Let's shake those hips!
Extremos Salsa offers classes for all levels in Amsterdam. Their classes are taught in English and there is no partner required.
Comedy by Neil Robinson
Neil will give a comedy show for you at the fair. Called 'Survival Guide to the Dutch'.
Maybe you know Neil of his boat tour company 'Those Dam Boat Guys'. They provide canal tours on small boats that fit 10 or 12 people. It's a pretty relaxed experience as the group is small enough for us to have conversations, rather than pre-recorded talks like on the big boats. Passengers are also encouraged to bring a picnic, and anything they would like to smoke, if they so choose.
Dutch Costume Museum and Photo Studio (Klederdrachtmuseum)
The Dutch Costume Museum presents the history of Holland by the Dutch Folk costumes in a monumental 17th century canal house at the Herengracht in Amsterdam. At the Expat Fair they will bring the Dutch folk costumes! Come to their stand #102 and make a picture of you dressed in the clothes of the Dutch Costume Photo Studio!
Maison de Couture - Lutterloh
José Veldkamp is a designer and a patternspecialist. She makes clothes with special designs and gives the workshop 'Lutterloh pattern drawing'. At the fair she will show you how this works! Visit her in stand #99.
