The Uitmarkt (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈœytmɑrkt]; English: Out Market) is the opening of the cultural season in Amsterdam, held every year over a weekend at the end of August, usually on and around the Leidseplein, Museumplein (museum square) and Nieuwmarkt. Many theatres open their doors for free to shows that range from classical music and ballet to hiphop, cabaret, literary recitals and film. Besides that, there are stands on the square and surrounding streets selling books or giving information on various cultural events of the next year.
The name literally means outmarket, referring to 'going out' (to see a show).
