Hi Marsha! You don't have to be very fancy, but don't show up in jeans. It's not that they won't let you in, but you will feel uncomfortable. Wear a dress with heels, or pants with a nice jacket. Hope you will enjoy yourself!

I would be wearing something elegant (for example something in black) but it is also fine if you wear jeans. Dutch people are very practical when it comes to fashion
