Bloemencorso Eelde

Sept. 3, 2022 - Sept. 4, 2022, Eelde

Thousands of visitors come to the Bloemencorso in Eelde, one of Europe’s greatest flower parades. The Bloemencorso Eelde has a long history and evolved into the biggest cultural outdoor event of the North. For two days, everything in Eelde revolves around the beautifully decorated floats.

  • The biggest annual flower parade in Drenthe.
  • Admire the beautifully decorated flower floats during the parade.
  • Enjoy flowers, music and theater performances.


On Saturday, the floats in the flower parade travel a 2.5 kilometer itinerary through Eelde. The parade consists of a number of beautifully decorated floats that follow the route. There are stands on the Mozartweg to watch the parade, as well as a parade market, feast tents, and a range of children’s activities. At the end of the days, there are prizes for the best floats and dazzling fireworks. 

On Sunday, you will be able to admire the floats up close on the festival grounds. In addition to children’s activities, there are artist performances at the parade market, too.
