Vlaggetjesdag Royal

Bookmark

Following Vlaggetjesdag in Scheveningen, a downtown style edition takes place on Sunday June 17th. in the Hofkwartier, the Royal quarter behind the Grote Kerk: A lively event with music performances, a food festival, childrens’ activities and a market stashed with fresh products and life style items. All themed around sea and beach life.
<br />
<br />
The Hofkwartier is the very spot where in the old days fresh products arrived into The Hague: Fresh fish from Scheveningen and vegetables and fruits from the Westland. Street names still refer to this:
<br />
Visbanken ( Fish Market) , Dagelijkse Groenmarkt ( Daily Greenmarket) en Riviervismarkt ( River Fish market). This summer, with Feest aan Zee en Vlaggetjesdag in Scheveningen, there now is a new chapter to this tradition of connectedness: Vlaggetjesdag Royal, downtown.
<br />
<br />
At the Veenkade canal the &lsquo;the seasons&rsquo; first barrel of haring&rdquo; comes ashore and will be presented to the King and Queen of the Hofkwartier &ndash; the Royal Quarter at 12.00 p.m. in the adjacent Paleistuinen &ndash; The Royal Gardens.
<br />
<br />
Throughout the Hofkwartier are performances of artists and fishermens&rsquo; choirs, the streets are dotted with whitewashed wooden houses and market stalls stashed with fresh food- and artisanal products.
<br />
<br />
The Papestraat creates its own Mediterranean atmosphere with wine tastings and terraces. On the Torenplein, in the Nobelstraat en de Korte Molenstraat is a Foodfestival, where apart from performances, there will be children&rsquo;s activities : in the rarities shop - Natural Choice - author Tjerk Noordraven signs his horror children&rsquo;s books while at the square extraordinary figures like a faun, a fortune teller and countess Dracula make a party of it. Children can participate in a seamens&rsquo; grave mummie-race. Scattered around the streets, crafsmen will show their skills to the public.
<br />
<br />
On the court of the Venduehuis a more than 10 meters wide panorama of sea and shore, by five The Hague artists, lined with a famous poem will be shown.
<br />
<br />
The event takes place from 11.00 &ndash; 18.00 uur in the streets and on the squares of het Hofkwartier: (Prinsestraat, Nobelstraat, Molenstraat, Annastraat, Oude Molstraat en Veenkade, Torenplein en Kerkplein).
