Events in Holland

Holland offers many, many events. Festivals, markets, parades, expositions and events are organised throughout the country in every season. Spring mainly offers flower parades and cheese markets. In summer, there's a wealth of dance, music and theatre festivals; autumn is the time for art and culture, and Sinterklaas and the Christmas markets bring warmth to cold winter months. The largest national event is celebrated every year on 27 April: King's Day. It's a must to come and see Holland turn orange for this event! Here, you'll find an overview of the annual events that are celebrated during the month of your visit.

Update: Due to COVID-19, there may be special conditions for gaining access to events. Avoid unpleasant surprises and keep an eye on our COVID-19 information page for the latest developments and advisories.
