Community Festival – 3 September

Saturday 3 September will be the day of our Community Festival around the fountain on Bankaplein. The theme of this festive day will be ‘Sustainability’!
The party will start at 16.00 hrs with a performance of the students of Balletschool Elsa Vreeken and will end at 23.00 hrs.
In the evening you will want to dance to the music of The Rumblers and the salsaband La Parranda. Anyone else who would like to perform can register:

At 18.00 hrs the Community meal, cooked in the home kitchens of volunteers, will be served. Meal coupons cost € 7,50 per person and can only be be bought in advance from Wednesday 24 August / Saturday 27 August at:
– Exotenhof, Bankastraat 78 G
– Babs & Lizeth, Bankastraat 107 A
– Zuivelland, Bankastraat 44

Would you like to lend a helping hand? Volunteers will be most welcome for cooking, building up, cleaning up, donators, sponsors. Please write us at 

For the children the train will ride its track, the merry-go-round has been booked and ZO Kinderopvang (location Riouwstraat) will help with the organisation.

This will be a festival of sustainability. All necessities for the festival will be durable and all the ingredients of the meal will be organic. A ‘poffertjes’ stall will be baking and selling organic tiny puff-pancakes.
Moreover we are planning activities that will be good for our environment, such as the ‘Operatie Steenbreek’ by the Municipality and the Stichting Duurzaam Den Haag: when you hand in a paving stone you will receive a free garden plant. (For information about Operatie Steenbreek you can go to )
