FAQs - Taste of Amsterdam

What’s included with my ticket?
All tickets include entry to the festival. To see the full details of each ticket type and what’s included, please click here.

Where do I buy tickets?
Tickets can be bought via our ticket partner Eventix in advance or at the ticket office at the event on the day. We do recommend that you pre-purchase your tickets to take advantage of the pre-festival discounts and to ensure you get the ticket type of your choice as some ticket types sell out in advance of the festival. Also, Taste of Amsterdam is limited in capacity so we recommend you purchase tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.

Why do I have service fee charged when I buy a Florijnen package and not on a regular ticket? 
This year we are using a different payment system. The packages will be charged on cashcards that you receive when your Florijnen ticket is scanned. These cards cost €1.

I purchased a ticket through Eventix and haven’t received the email with tickets yet. What do I do?
All tickets are e-tickets. Please have a copy of your ticket ready on your phone, or have a print-out ready to show in the relevant entry lane at the festival (signs will direct you to the correct lane). If you have any ticket related questions, please contact Eventix directly by clicking here.

What are the event opening times?
Taste of Amsterdam takes place from the 31st of May – 3rd of June. For more information, please refer to ‘About Taste’ page.

How much are each of the dishes at the restaurants?
Most dishes vary from €5,- to €7,50, however a restaurant’s ‘Icon Dish’ may be priced from € 7,50 upwards.

How do I pay for food or products from the Gourmet Market?
You can pay at the Gourmet Market using either cash or Florins (Taste currency). Some stands also accept PIN or credit cards.
