Bloemencorso, Markt , 5554 CA, Valkenswaard

Annually on the second Sunday of September, the Bloemencorso Valkenswaard Foundation organizes its dahliaparade in the center of Valkenswaard. This parade consists of beautiful cars completely covered by dahlias. Together with various musical acts, the parade is a feast for the senses that hit more than 30,000 visitors. The annually changing theme is performed in both the cars and the acts around it, in a combination of street and music theater.

On Sunday September 10, 2017 Corso Valkenswaard will be proud to see fourteen beautiful corsowagens. The central theme is: 65 years Efteling in flowers. A jubilee year for the Efteling and thus a unique collaboration between the Efteling and Corso Valkenswaard! Each neighborhood is inspired by one of Efteling's attractions or fairy tales. The creativity of all neighborhoods creates a colorful and efteling-worthy corso parade. The parade begins at 14.00. Twice the full parade passes.

There are also several Efteling caricatures on and around the trail. From 11 am until midnight there is plenty of entertainment for young and old. At the Rabobank Children's Square, the children can enjoy themselves. Throughout the day there are many live performances of groups, fanfares and showbands from all over the Netherlands and the end of the musical closing during Dahlia Afterparty on the Statie.
