Haarlem’s alive! Bursting with festivals and events for young and old. Besides activities at museums, theatres and music venues, there are annual events such as Bloemenweekend (Flower Weekend), Bevrijdingspop (liberation music festival), Haarlem Culinair (culinary event) and Haarlem Jazz & More. The cultural season kicks off in the second weekend of September, October is Children’s Month in Haarlem and December traditionally sees the Anton Pieck Parade and atmospheric Christmas market take place. See what else is on and join in the fun.
