Roodharigendag (Redhead Day Netherlands) – 23-25 August 2024:

Possibly the most famous ginger celebration of all. This summertime festival is held in Tilburg, Netherlands. The festival focuses on art, lectures, music and demonstrations connected to red hair. This year, redheads are invited to attended a carnival parade. Redheads have been asked to wear this year’s colour theme: green.

The festival was founded by the Dutch artist Bart Rouwenhorst, who advertised his need for ginger models back in 2005. Instead of the 15 he asked for, 150 redheads volunteered. The group took part in a photoshoot, and for years later, the tradition continued. There you have it! Roodharigendag!
