    Dutch Cultural Events List
    June 2009 Edition

    The June gloom may have settled into the LA basin, but there is plenty to lift the haze in the world of Dutch arts and culture this summer – from a conference on sustainable architecture and urban planning in San Francisco later this month to a return visit to Los Angeles by one of our favorite musical groups, the Amstel Quartet, in August.

    If your travel plans bring you to New York this summer, you will have a lot of choices with all the NY400 activities and programs, celebrating the 400-year anniversary of Henry Hudson’s arrival and the settlement of the first Dutch colony on the island of Manhattan. For a complete list of programs and exhibitions, visit the website (in Dutch) or (in English).

    And don’t worry… sunny days are ahead!
