Leiden Culinair, which takes place the same week as Lakenfeesten, is one of the great food events of the summer.
For four days in June, the Lammermarkt in downtown Leiden and its surroundings become the focal point where restaurants present their best dishes. Expect food encounters, both familiar and surprising, culinary discoveries and top-notch entertainment.
Food celebrations in the streets of Leiden
Inspiration, accessibility and quality are the defining features of the festival. The historic city of Leiden becomes a meeting point for everybody, from residents to visitors, from private local businesses to municipalities and social organisations. Each participating restaurant has its own stand in the street, therefore the square is one large terrace serving scrumptious food.
