De Parade

26 June 2021 - 29 Aug. 2021, The Hague

The Parade is a 67-day, travelling theatre festival that hits Holland’s four main cities in succession: Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Amsterdam. At each stop, The Parade brings a splash of wild culture transforming their parks into passages lined with colorful carnival tents, entertaining acts, eateries and a carousel.

  • Travelling theatre & entertainment festival.
  • Varied program of art, theatre and music.
  • Theatre, circus, carnival and a funfair in one.

Experience De Parade

This festival is a fun, cultural and diverse experience where many of the startling performances are produced especially for the Parade. Based on the ancient principles of funfairs and the carnival, the Parade encourages artists to express themselves in special short performances and interact with the audience directly. The shows are performed several times every night so that visitors don’t have to miss a thing.

Travel festival

As the fun-factor festival travels around in Holland for more than 65 days, there’s plenty of time to visit the fantastic theatrical world of the Parade.
