One of Haarlem’s biggest outdoor fests offers an exotic blend of music. It takes place at the Stadspark de Haarlemmerhout in Haarlem.

Houtfestival is a relaxed event where people of all ages and backgrounds come. You can listen to the music, dance, enjoy a variety of good food and bring your own plaid and sit down on the grass.

The free festival has something for folks of all ages, with family-oriented shows in a special theatre tent.
