The Holland Area Arts Council hosts a number of events throughout the festival, including a quilt show featuring an amazing array of intricately stitched examples of this time-honored craft.

One of the most popular events of the festival is the Volksparade (People’s Parade), left, where anyone—even the tiniest residents—can don native historical garb and join in the task of sweeping the streets “Dutch clean.” Dancing skills are on display, right, as townspeople click their wooden shoes to the rhythm of beloved folk tunes.
