But the friendly family atmosphere is still there. Lots of familiar faces; a time to catch up with old friends. Music and dance, typical Dutch foods and lots of things to keep the children entertained. So if you miss your typical Dutch: kroketten, patat met (fries with mayo), drop (licorice), haring (herring) & cheese, boerenkoolstamp met worst (Dutch mash with sausage)
itâ€™s the place to find all of those delicacies and more. Remember those old fashioned games: steltelopen (walking on stilts), touwtje trekken (lucky strings); theyâ€™re all at the Holland Festival for the next generations to enjoy. Including the always popular game of sjoelbakken, which is enjoyed by all ages.
Then there is the dancing; on the dance floor or maybe youâ€™re just happy to sit and watch traditional clogdancers. Music and entertainment all day from morning till night, for young and old. Displays of handcrafts such as Delft Blue and many stalls with a large variety of items such as Dutch foods, t-shirts and tea towels!
