Program Seaside Celebrations - A year of festivities in The Hague

In 2018, The Hague will be dominated by Feest aan Zee. During this festive year, the agenda is packed with events, festivals and exhibitions. Below you will find the program per month. Keep an eye on this page, because more and more events are coming up!


Children celebrate Feest aan Zee in October. A special programme during the autumn half-term holiday with various fun activities for young and old. From experiments with seawater and sand to doing arts & crafts with plastic waste. A new item on the calendar in October is the Jazz at Sea. After many years, The Hague ~ Scheveningen will finally have its own jazz festival again. The cultural temple of olden days, the Kurhaus, will be revived for this.


Throbbing engines and sand blowing in the air. In November, the Red Bull Knock Out competition will take place again in Scheveningen. This is a sensational event with the boulevard used as bleachers and the sea as background decoration. A huge children’s party will of course be held in the marina when Sinterklaas and his Pieten come on shore. The days are getting shorter, but indoors there is much to be enjoyed. From Holland Casino, Tasty Comedy at the Pier or a musical in the AFAS Circus theatre.


The dark days before Christmas are extra cosy in Scheveningen during the Scheveningen Light Walk. While the lighthouse shines its beacon over the coastline, thousands of hikers walk through the bathing resort. On their way, they come across luminous art at surprising locations. Feest aan Zee of course ends in Scheveningen with the lighting of the bonfires. Who will build a record-breaking stack this year?
