What is a party without celebrating it with others? At the Vierdaagsefeesten we have got you covered: party together with one and a half million other visitors who can be found in Nijmegen these seven days.

"A freely, accessible and invaluable event for the generations of today and tomorrow"

Brand sur­vey: best atmos­phere in the Netherlands!

In the 2018 Event Brand Sur­vey by Bran­dAlche­my, a large-scale pub­lic sur­vey of the 50 largest events in the Nether­lands, the Nijmegen Vier­daagse­feesten ranked high­est for its atmos­phere, accord­ing to the Dutch pub­lic. Vis­i­tors expe­ri­enced the Vier­daagse­feesten as an active, bright, unique and friend­ly brand.

Vis­i­tors also ranked the Vier­daagse­feesten just below the Four Day march­es among the brands sur­veyed. The fes­ti­val also appeared in the top 5 of the strongest event brands among adults, togeth­er with the Four Day March­es, Pinkpop and SAIL Ams­ter­dam. In the rank­ing for strongest recre­ation brands in the Province of Gelder­land, the Nijmegen Vier­daagse­feesten is in the top 3, togeth­er with the Four Day March­es and Burg­ers’ Zoo, with a stronger brand than com­pa­ra­ble events.
