61st Brabantsedag (Brabant Day) program announced

A full day of historic and theatrical entertainment in the village of Heeze on Sunday 26 August. All about Brabant’s past. Eindhoven News as the Brabantsedag Media Associate keeps you updated on this spectacular event.

On this day the small village of Heeze (10 km from Eindhoven) turns into a living theatre with theatrical displays on several squares throughout the day. As well as markets, circus acts and music, but the absolute highlight of the last Sunday in August is the fabulous and famous parade.

From 10:00h to approximately 19:00h, this will be the program on the ‘ambiance&taste’ squares where you can watch, listen, laugh, enjoy, eat and drink.

Of course, the squares will fall silent when the theatre parade approaches. But once the parade has passed, the show continues.
