The Elf Fantasy Fair
Boasting over 22.500 visitors every year, the three-day Elf Fantasy Fair is the largest fantasy event in Europe!
Founded in 2001, the organisation hosts two large events each year; one at Haarzuilens and another at Castle Arcen in Limburg.
During the April event, De Haar Castle and the surrounding grounds are transformed into the mythical kingdom of Elfia, a "realm that is never finished" and is composed of a variety of characters, species, races and creative beings.
These inhabitants are the participants, who are encouraged to wear elaborate costumes expressing their inner character or fantasy.
Common costumes draw inspiration from folklore, legends, popular sci-fi, the Middle Ages, anime and the many fantasy worlds and sub-genres in-between.
