Hospitality is in our DNA. Zandvoort also has the ability to adapt to the needs of large crowds. So it is not strange that Zandvoort hosts big, national events. These past years several large events have been organized, and you can not only visit the main venue, but the whole town of Zandvoort joins in with the theme. The New Year's Dive, the oldest in the Netherlands, draws thousands of visitors from around the region, for instance. And there is also Pride at the Beach, a three-day festival that is part of Pride Amsterdam. The Runner's World Zandvoort Circuit Run is an annual event where runners start at the racetrack and follow a course along the beach and through the village. The Historic Grand Prix is a very special event that attracts many lovers of classic racing cars. And as from 2020, one of the greatest motor sports events in the world will return to the Zandvoort racetrack. After an absence of 35 years, an official Formula 1 Grand Prix will once again take place.
So there are events all year round, not just during the busy summer season. Don't want to miss any of these events in Zandvoort? Check www.visitzandvoort.com frequently!
