Zomer Carnaval
Fri 18 & Sun 20 July 2014
Carnival in the Netherland Antilles is usually celebrated in the winter or early spring which is far too cold for celebrating Carnival in Europe, therefore carnival in Rotterdam, Holland which is derived from the Antilles, is celebrated during the summer.

First celebrated on August 4, 1984 in Rotterdam as the Antillian Summer Carnival, the festival, which attracted around 900,000 visitors annually from 2004 to 2007, is now called Zomercarnaval, which is Dutch for Summer Carnival.

Some of the most anticipated pre-Carnival events are the official Zomercarnaval Queen Election, the Zomercarnaval Beach Party and the Battle of Drums competition.

The climax of the Rotterdam Summer Carnival is the street parade which is held on the Saturday, however during and after the street parade there are two live on stage concerts at the Coolsingel and the Churchillplein until late in the evening.
