The Vierdaagsefeesten in numbers

In 2018, the Vierdaagsefeesten broke all attendance records. Never before in 49 years of Vierdaagsefeesten did we have the pleasure of welcoming 1.6 million visitors to our event. In just seven days, 1.615.000 million people visited the city center of Nijmegen that year. 

This large number of visitors cannot just be attributed to the traditionally crowded nights. On the contrary, the daytime program – which has seen increasing investments in the last couple of years – attracted many visitors as well. Places where it was quite peaceful during the daytime in previous years, are now buzzing with people and activities.
