Noorderzon Festival of Performing Arts & Society is the real highlight of the cultural summer. The annual festival attracts more than 135,000 visitors to the Noorderplantsoen and has free admission. Certainly visitors come for the performances, but definitely also for the many outdoor cafés, food stalls, lights and artistic installations that adorn the park during the festival.
