The only traveling theater festival in the world

from June 21st to September 1st

de Parade

This summer, the theater festival known as ‘de Parade’ will take place from June 21 to September 1st. During de Parade, around 80 different theater, dance, mime, and music performances are presented for audiences of all ages in theater tents. Each performance has an average duration of 30 minutes, allowing you to easily enjoy two, three, or even four shows in one evening. But the Parade offers much more than just captivating performances. Treat your taste buds with a wide array of delicious food and make sure to visit the famous swing ride that graces the heart of the venue, providing an exhilarating experience for all. As night falls, the Silent Disco invites you to dance the night away and you'll have the pleasure of enjoying a different band performing every night.

For kids

Every day, there is an extensive program for children of all ages: de KinderParade. With a variety of performances, workshops, and activities. You can craft at Boks-je-Kunst, make a swing in the famous Zweef or enjoy making your own poffertjes and lollipops. There is a KinderParade every day from 2:00 PM, except in Eindhoven and Rotterdam, where KinderParade is only available on weekends and with the exception of the very first Friday in a city. On that day, we open at 6:00 PM, and there is no program for the little ones.


The ticket sales for the Parade start on Thursday, May 31st. You can purchase a ticket online or at the entrance to visit the Parade.
