Events and festivals are organized with great regularity in Gouda. Most of these take place in the center of the town, but you will also find nice festivals and happenings in other areas, such as on GoudAsfalt. The fact that Gouda has such an extensive programme is one of the reasons that Gouda won the prize for Best Events Town in 2019 (in the category of up to 100,000 residents).
Of course, The Gouda Shop is always open on these dates. In addition, I sometimes organize happenings in the shop. For example, artists
and artisans regularly come to visit and give demonstrations and talk about their profession and passion.
Events coming up:
15, 16 & 17 September 2022 – Festival closing the Gouda 750 celebrations
22 October 2022 – Zotte Zaterdag (medieval festival)
16 December 2022 – Gouda by candlelight
Gouda lends itself very well to city walks. For example those of Gouda Guides, view the options on their website
