Libelle Zomerweek 2017 at Almere starts next week!

Have you been to this event? It’s a Dutch annual event where you have local music artists performing and you can participate in the free workshops offered. Check out the programme for the workshops this year which range from how to do a perfect manicure, how to wear your scarf in a creative way, create your own apron, bracelet, etc.  It’s a huge shopping opportunity with more than 300 participating shops. This year’s dates are 15-21 May, so you have a good range of days to choose when to go! It’s a full day event and the entrance fee per day is €19.95, if you buy it on the day itself. I highly recommend that you pre-book your ticket if you want to go, as you get to sign up for the free workshops before the date.

I went a couple of years ago and I had an absolutely fantastic time. Make sure to check the weather before hand – it’s an outdoor event by the beach and it’s so much more fun when it isn’t pouring with rain. Hundreds of people attended the event.  I particularly loved the free workshops that are offered and you can spend the entire day just walking around all the stalls. I bought some great stuff and they sell everything there from food, shoes, clothes, jewellery, etc. I discovered the best dates there (Yogi & Yousef’s 100% natural dates) and still buy them!

To get there, it’s about an hour’s drive away from Den Haag Central station and you can park your car at the designated areas. Again, if you buy your car park ticket before the day itself, you get a discounted rate. It’s a very organised event as there are shuttle buses that transport you from the car park to the event itself.
