Arts and culture is right around the corner in Venlo
Arts and culture is right around the corner in Venlo. In Venlo we operate on the principle that you can never have enough arts and culture. We are proud of the tradition of carnival, otherwise known as ‘Vastelaovend’ where a colourful, exuberant celebration transforms the city for five wonderful days. As soon as the sun is out you can also enjoy a (free) festival almost every weekend, whether it’s based around music, food, drinks, arts, culture or all of the above.
You best make sure to not limit yourself to the city centre either as you will miss the wonderful activities that are being organised in other neighbourhoods, too.
