The Kermis in Volendam
Every year in the first full weekend of September, the 'kermis' comes to Volendam. A kermis is a travelling fair which visits each town and city at least once a year. With over a 100 rides and stalls, the Volendam edition is known throughout The Netherlands as one of the best and biggest kermis fairs in the country. Don't be surprised to see large crowds of singing, dancing and costume wearing people outside the many bars, pubs and restaurants in the harbour.
