Tong Tong Fair

The 64th edition of the Tong Tong Fair has been canceled!

The Tong Tong Fair presents another kaleidoscopic crossover of Eastern and Western cultures this year, with a strong international programme. A feel-good event that feels like a mini vacation to Southeast Asia & the Pacific. It is also a festival where theater makers, artists, dancers, musicians, designers, photographers, writers and historians investigate Indian culture and colonial history with the eyes of today.

The Tong Tong Fair consists of the famous Grand Pasar with the Indonesia Pavilion, the Food District, with dozens of Asian restaurants and waroengs, and the international Tong Tong Festival, a cultural programme around the mix of East and West in performing arts, exhibitions, spoken word and current affairs. All days will feature dance and music performances, exhibitions, book launches, interviews, cooking demonstrations and, of course, plenty of tastings from various Indonesian regional cuisines.


The entrance tickets are linked to a date. Depending on the day on which you want to visit the Tong Tong Fair, you will pay more or less for a ticket. In this way, the fair can better spread the visitors and keep it widely accessible. You do not pay any service or transaction costs. Ticket sales have started via the online Ticket Shop on the Tong Tong Fair website.

The Malieveld is easily accessible in various ways thanks to its central location. The venue is ideally located next to The Hague Central Station and the Utrechtse Baan.
