The Hague

Fancy a round-the-world trip from the comfort of home? The Embassy Festival in The Hague celebrates its eighth edition in 2020. This year, you can sit back and enjoy the corona-proof edition at home!

The Embassy Festival goes digital

The majestic boulevard known as Lange Voorhout would be the typical centre of the festivities with impressive music, dance and theatre acts across four stages, where visitors enjoy the music and taste delicious food from all corners of the world. 

This year, though, it's going to be quite different, taking place online instead of in its usual location. You can still taste delicious food from different corners of the globe with the Embassy Festival Surprise Box, put together thanks to a collaboration between festival organisers and different embassies based in The Hague.

The Hague, an international city

The Hague is the international city of peace and justice that brings the world together. Being the embassy city of the Netherlands, the population of The Hague is a very international one, with one in three inhabitants having roots abroad. The Embassy Festival, collaborating with the embassies of nearly 40 countries, showcases the cultural richness of this dynamic city. 

So many different countries are represented at the festival. Last year was impressively varied, featuring countries from Kuwait to Tanzania, from Uzbekistan to Kosovo, from Nigeria to Denmark. Tune in online to see which countries you'll be discovering this year!
