Spring 2024 edition of Elfia in Haarzuilens

The spring edition of Elfia takes place over two days at Castle De Haar in Haarzuilens outside Utrecht, which transforms into a magical kingdom.

Elfia typically welcoms around 25.000 visitors each year. This year has an impressive line-up at the historic castle grounds, from workshops to performances and from a costume parade to cosplay will welcome you dressed in your finest fairytale costume.
