1. It’s the largest in the Netherlands

Tilburg fair is the largest in the whole of the Netherlands – in fact, the Benelux! Over 200 attractions are present at Tilburg fair, so there is no shortage of things to do. Prepare for the walk though – it’s around 3km long. 😉


2. It’s free entry

Rides aren’t your thing or on a tight budget? No worries, it’s free! This means that you don’t have to worry about getting ripped off by high entrance fees. It also gives you and your crew more money to spend on rides and delicious food.

Oh, it’s not one fo those fairs for gambling, but you can always go to this site

3. Fun for everyone

There is literally something for all ages at the Tilburg Kermis. For example, on the Tuesday there is a afternoon for people with mental and physical disabilities – they can use the attractions for free or with a reduction. On Wednesday, it’s an afternoon for children and they will pay a low-rate. On Sunday, it is Blue Sunday, dedicated to people who have issues with crowds, loud music and lights.


There is also lots of rides, food, festivals, music, drinks and more. There really is something for everyone.

4. Lekker food and drinks

There will be plenty of food and drinks to go around. Burgers, bratwurst, fries, cotton candy, churros, popcorn – you name it, they’ve got it. So even if you’ve with someone fussy, then don’t panic, they’ll be stuff for them too.

5. It’s more than just a funfair

Tilburg fair is so much more than just a fair, it has live music (techno, rap, hiphop, hardstyle etc), a Pink Monday to celebrate diversity in the city and plenty of spots to chill and have drinks with friends. So if you’re not big lover of rides, yet you don’t want to be called the killjoy of the group, then you still have a reason to attend!
