An open air storytelling festival especially for kids up to age 12! Unfortunately, there is no edition of Verhalenbazaar this year.
A tent village made out of yurts (traditional Mongolian tents) rose up in neighborhood park Oude Westen, creating a space for storytelling with tales from all over the world.
Each yurt had its own theme. Beautiful princesses, brave knights, and terrifying dragons came to life in your imagination, in stories starring magic carpets, barbaric bandits, and hideous cyclopes.
Besides listening to compelling tales, the kids could get face-painted, build a dream castle out of bamboo and rubber bands, blow giant bubbles, and star in their own theater production!
