International Community Fair – February, The Hague City Hall
2019-01-03 | By The Hague Online
Biggest International Community Fair
The Feel at Home Fair is the biggest gathering of the international community in the Netherlands. Over 4000 people, representing more than 100 nationalities, come together to share their experience of life in Holland and make connections locally.
The Fair is unique in its variety of exhibitors, presenters, performers and players representing our diverse community and the interests that bring us together. It recognises that international people don’t just come to the Netherlands to work, you also come here to rest and play. And you don’t come here alone, you bring your family, visitors and friends, who also need to Feel at Home.
All interests and pastimes
The 2019 Feel at Home Fair aims to bring together as many different communities as possible so that everyone can find a connection locally, be it with an international or a local group. Those connections can be made through business, culture, sport, nationality or religion. Any shared interest, concern or desire to learn which brings like-minded people together–to work, socialise, exercise, learn a new skill… or simply to relax.
Around half of the 150 stands at the Feel at Home Fair are Sport, Social and Community groups representing all manner of hobbies and pastimes for every age. Whether you wish to play football or play the saxophone, play Mah-jong or play the villain in the Christmas panto… you’ll find others who share your interest at the Fair.
Uniting and sharing
The Feel at Home Fair team invites these culturally diverse groups to identify the activity or interest which unites their work, school, sport or social community, and share it with the international community at the Fair. To bring the dance or the game, the food or the mood, the art or the craft, the passion or the cause, that animates their group and motivates them to get together. And to give visitors the opportunity to understand and participate in the activity that their community enjoys.
Interacting with visitors creates the special warmth and atmosphere for which the Feel at Home Fair is known and appreciated. It is a celebration of a united international community in which everyone can Feel at Home.
