Come Out & Play 2007 in Amsterdam

In 2007 the Come Out & Play Festival partnered with the PICNIC '07 Festival in Amsterdam to bring street games to the Netherlands for two days.

PICNIC is a festival of creativity and innovation. A week of 'fresh ideas'. One of the world’s leading events where creative minds from the world of media, entertainment, science and the arts convened in Amsterdam from September 24-29.

Come Out & Play ran in Amsterdam from September 28-29. Games were centered mainly around the Mirror Tent in Westergasfabriek and around the Waag in Nieuwmarkt. The festival was a great success, drawing scores of players and designers from around the world.
