26 April 2023 - 27 April 2023
To celebrate the King's birthday, Enschede organizes the annual Koningsfestival Enschede. Join in the festivities and discover all kinds of entertainment!
Koningsnacht (King's Night) and Koningsdag (King's Day) together form the Koningsfestival Enschede. With official festivities, various themed squares, the Oranjemarkt and many more surprising activities, the city will be coloured red, white, blue and orange.
There will be a free (music) program on the Oude Markt, in the Walstraat, Hofstraat, on the Stationsplein, Willem Wilminkplein, Ei van Ko and Jacobusplein. The Kindermatjesmarkt and Oranjemarkt will also be organized. The kindermatjesmarkt is a typical Dutch tradition. This market is especially for children. They sell second hand stuff that they display on a mat or rug out on the street. It is fun to see the children live up to their role of market vendor.
Celebrate an unforgettable Dutch party - in orange, of course!
With different venues all over the city centre, it's two days of full-on party in Enschede.
Are you looking for second hand gems? Go to the Kindermatjesmarkt on the Van Heekplein where children sell their products or walk through the streets of the city centre where the Oranjemarkt offers you the best deals!
