Celebrate democracy!

Prinsjesfestival is held yearly in The Hague, the week before and on prince’s day itself. During Prinsjesfestival we celebrate that we are a democracy. In other words a country in which everyone counts. That’s why the festival includes substantive and festive activities. In this particular way we aim to create a feast for everyone. From those who are politically involved to those who visit The Hague for conviviality.

A different theme every year

Every year Prinsjesfestival is all about a specific theme. In 2020 the theme revolves around the following: REMAIN FREE, “freedom is a verb!”

Guest province 2020: North Holland

Province North Holland is the strategic partner of Prinsjesfestival. Every year we have a province as our guest and they facilitate a program, this year out of The Paviljoen from North Holland, location Nieuwspoort. Nieuwspoort will act, this year aswell, as a base for all activities the province is going to organize.

During the festival, different activities are facilitated by the province, in which the versatility, innovation and character of the province North Holland are brought forward all under this year’s theme: The province North Holland does it together!

North Holland is a province where it is delicate to be at. Where you will pleasantly live and work. Where you’re able to go from point A to B. Where always something happens. That is North Holland.

Festival for everyone

Prinsjesfestival focuses on several target audiences. Ranging between the young and old. It offers substantive and inspiring events for the politically involved, but also offers fun activities for those visiting the inner city of The Hague. Specific events are catered towards students. These are organized by collabarating with schools.
