City to host Holland Village Festival

To mark 40 years of diplomatic relations between the Netherlands and Vietnam, the Consulate General of the Netherlands in Ho Chi Minh City will organize the Holland Village festival at Sep 23 Park in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 1 from October 22-31. 

Holland Village organized in HCMC in 2010

The festival will recreate life in the Netherlands and showcase its people, culture, traditional houses, and the quintessential windmills, which are symbolic of this small yet beautiful country.

Holland’s favorite flower, the tulip, will be the highlight of the festival, and will be seen in abundance at the festival venue.

Small children can take part in the festival in milking and feeding a cow or other interesting activities.

The popular Holland Village journey started in 1985 and has visited many parts of the world.

Along with the festival on October 22, there will be a cyclo and bicycle demonstration called ‘Waves of Orange’ on streets in HCMC’s downtown area.
