Get ready to make a splash at Rotterdam Water Weekend! In and around the Rotterdam inland waterways, during the first weekend of July.
Dive into the deep!
This summer, the Rotterdam waterways will transform into a festival terrain filled with activities! Workshops, theater shows and musical performances: something for everyone!
A Refreshing Dive
The event opens with a Waste Ballet Act, music by Roots & Routes and a pirate-style island ride! Visitors can spend the remaining days in the water themselves, taking part in dragon boat races, swimming competitions, boat tours and relaxing on the various pop-up islands. The embankment is changed into a Beach Along the Rotte and there are a variety of children’s activities available.
A large clean-up will be held in the Rotte on the 25th of June, right before the event kicks off. If you are interested in helping the divers and SUP boarders, sign up on the website! The collected garbage will eventually be used to create a large piece of art near the Noorderbrug.
The schedule and line-up can be found here.
