During the May bank holiday, the ancient Fort aan de Klop is transformed into a festival site replicating an old-fashioned funfair, including a real swing carrousel. There’s plenty to do for kids between 4 and 12, from drawing and decorating cupcakes, to painting crockery and building wooden shacks. The tiny tots can have fun on the picnic field. But we haven’t forgotten the parents: there’s live music, street theatre and an open-air bar. Or grab a bite to eat from one of the food trucks. You can bike to Fort aan de Klop from the centre of town or take the bus (line 3 towards Zuilen, get off at Fransicusdreef).

> 20 and 21 May, Fort aan de Klop
