The Hague will host the World Championships of Sailing from 10-20 August 2023, with a central theme of “Get Ready for the Best”.
Allianz WK Zeilen, as the event is known in Dutch, will bring together over 1200 participants to compete in sailing, kite sailing and windsurfing events in Scheveningen. Along with 400 in the organising team and around 600 volunteers, this is the largest sporting event ever held in The Hague.
On 11, 12 & 13 August 2023, the traveling wine festival “Het Wijn Festijn” returns to The Hague. The Lange Voorhout will be transformed into an intimate wine festival. Come by and enjoy more than 100 different wines and tasty delicacies. All this while enjoying pleasant music.
The second edition of Latin in The Park on Friday 11 August features the Fania All Stars, the figurehead of salsa music worldwide. Founded in 1968, the music group was a collective of the greatest salsa artists of the time. Think Hector Lavoe, Celia Cruz and Willie Colon, among others. As a collective, they popularised the term salsa as a collection of different Latin American styles.
With live music, a DJ until the late hours, food trucks on site, atmospheric seating areas and, of course, ice-cold drinks to cool down with.
