Flower festival

Three day flower festival in Noordwijk: 19th, 20th and 21th April.

Noordwijk is known as the floral seaside resort, and with good reason. On 19th, 20th and 21st April the renowned Flower Parade of the bulb-growing region takes place in Noordwijk. This is the biggest and most famous event in the Netherlands.

A new addition this year is the Torchlight Parade on the evening of Friday 19th April, where all the floats process through lively Noordwijk enchantingly lit up. On Saturday morning the parade sets out again from the boulevard on its 40km journey to Haarlem. After the parade has left Noordwijk, the Koningin Wilhelmina Boulevard is taken over by a magnificent procession of private cars and floats, getting the festival into full swing around The Most Beautiful Traffic Jam in the Netherlands.
