Lakenfeesten Leiden

- , 17:00
Various locations within Leiden city centre

The Lakenfeesten are a part of Leiden, like Prinsjesdag is part of the Hague. The Lakenfeesten take place every year during the last weekend of June. The 2017 edition of the festival is set to take place from 22 – 25 June. The event has a long development history, dating back to the heyday of Leiden’s textile industry. For four days, the city serves as a stage for a festival packed to the rafters with performances, events and fun at various locations. The traditional element of the festival is, of course, the Rabobank Peurbakkentocht (race with wildly decorated boats) on Friday. As tradition has it, Dragonboat races will take place on the Saturday at the Apothekersdijk and the Boommarkt. On the same day, the popular Beer Festival will take place at the Hooglandse Kerkplein. In the evening, you can enjoy Dutch music during the Hollandse Avond at the Stadhuisplein or go see Out of Control and Los at the Morspoort Live music event. On Sunday, the street music contest De Gouden Pet will take place at various locations in the city centre.
