Heart Days (Hartjesdagen)14th August - 16th August
Every year in August, Hartjesdagen take place at Zeedijk. A colorful, spectacular event with a parade with costumed and cross-dressed people passing through the street.
Hartjesdagen starts on Friday with the ‘Night of Romance’, with performances by Fifi L'Amour and Rodolfo Ravissant. In the cafes on and around the Zeedijk are various performances. On Saturday you will have festivities throughout the day, varying from a Big Band to opera. In the evening, one of the big attractions is the exciting and hilarious High Heels Race. On Sunday there is the traditional Zeedijk Brunch, obviously with a lot of music and the crowning of the Queen of Hartjesdagen, the best cross-dresser of this year.
