SPECTACULAR SPRING FESTIVAL
This Spectacular Spring Festival is almost a week of activities with colourful and fragrant hyacinths and tulips from the Bulb district of The Netherlands. You can enjoy this spectacle in 2021 from Wednesday 14th April to Sunday 18th April. The highlight is always Corso Saturday, this year on 17th April when the world famous parade travels from Noordwijk to Haarlem. See below for the main events and find practical details to accompany your visit.
CORSO SATURDAY: FROM NOORDWIJK TO HAARLEM
Enjoy the experience of a lifetime on Corso Saturday when the floats and floral vehicles travel the 42 km route though walls of cheering spectators. From the seaside town of Noordwijk to the centre of the historic city of Haarlem, Bloemencorso Bollenstreek is one colourful and fragrant parade of music and entertainment. You don't want to miss it!
BEHIND THE SCENES
For three days from Wednesday 14th to Friday morning 16th April you can watch the art of decorating the floats in The Klinkenberg tennis hall in Sassenheim. Hundreds of volunteers are busily attaching the millions of flowers. With luck you may get a chance to give them a hand.
On Friday evening 16th April you can view the Corso in a different light. At 9 p.m. we illuminate the floats with thousands of lamps as they drive through the charming village of Noordwijkerhout. An experience not to be missed.
On Sunday 18th April, the floats are on show one last time in the historical floral city of Haarlem. Use the opportunity to take perfect pictures surrounded by music and entertainment while enjoying a drink at one of the cafes. At 5 p.m. we wave the floats a final goodbye.
