The Kwaku (or Kwakoe as it used to be called) Festival is a yearly event in Amsterdam South East.
The Festival takes place during a number of weekends during the summer.
The festival includes a soccer tournament, and other than that there is a lot of music and (tropical) food. It is very much a Surinamese festival, a place to see and be seen.
In the last few years, since 2012, there has been a Pink Sunday (gay/lesbian/transgender party).
A fee (E 5) is asked to enter the festival grounds. Kwaku is held in the Nelson Mandelapark (previously called Bijlmerpark) in Amsterdam South East.
