Strawberry Festival in Zundert!

Zundert, in the province of Noord Brabant, is not only known as the birthplace of Vincent van Gogh and for the oldest and largest flower parade in the world, but also for its annual strawberry festival, which will be held the weekend of June 29 and 30, 2019. In other words – this weekend!

So, hurry to Zundert and enjoy Netherland’s most popular strawberry festival. It promises to be a hot event. Yes, hot!  It will be around 30 degrees centigrade. But, don’t let that prevent you. There will be entertainment, stalls with various fun local merchandise, contests and strawberries. Who doesn’t like strawberries?

This region of Noord Brabant is known for growing lots of strawberries. Because of their distinct aroma, bright red colour, juicy texture, and sweetness they are consumed in large quantities, either fresh or in variations such as preserves, juice, pies, ice creams, milkshakes or covered with chocolate. All these delights will be available at the festival.

So, take a plane, train, car, bus, bicycle or just walk to Zundert this weekend. You can even see the location where Vincent was born. He would have been very pleased that you stopped by.
