Lentetuin Breezand, a household name in the Kop van Noord-Holland and far beyond. The world's most beautiful indoor bulb flower show is back. Flower bulb growers show off their exceptionally high-quality products to consumers and professionals alike. Tens of thousands of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, lilies and other colourful spring blooms are presented in creative ways. "There's music in that" is the theme of this high-quality, inspiring and dynamic show. From Wednesday 1 to Sunday 5 March, thousands of visitors can feast their eyes on the Lentetuin Breezand.
'The calling card of the flower bulb industry', that is the Lentetuin Breezand organised entirely by dozens of volunteers. In the middle of the largest continuous flower bulb area in the world, flower bulb growers, volunteers and sponsors have been joining forces since 1981. After months of preparations, ZAP Breezand's sports complex will once again be transformed into this annual bulb show in a few days' time.
This year's event is all about innovation. For instance, the bulbous flowers will no longer be planted in potting soil, but will be displayed in impressive arrangements. Chief arranger Martin Elling has once again created a creative design. "Think Beatles zebra crossing of flowers, metre-high flower arrangements and dynamic selfie spots," said chairman Dennis Burger. "Photos of visitors at the show will go all over the world, a wonderful signboard of the flower bulb industry!" The music theme is not only reflected in the show's décor and furnishings. Amidst all the floral splendour, artists such as choirs, jazz bands, singer-songwriters and dance groups will provide an extra live experience. Furthermore, enthusiastic students in a greenhouse at Vonk (formerly: Clusius College) will talk about the details of their craft. "Visitors will be surprised by this revamped, contemporary set-up. There are more flowers than ever on display. Spring begins in Breezand!" said Burger.
Besides the bulb flower show, the Lentetuin traditionally also features an Agri Vakbeurs, a spring fair and restaurant. A nice new addition this year is a cosy fairground full of market stalls that brings even more variety in the range of (local) products and services on offer. Children's karaoke, the big craft table and a ball pit will provide entertainment in the children's tent. In addition, children can scavenge for 'mini-musicians' making their way around the Spring Garden. Fun for young, but secretly for old(er) too. Visitors can vote for their favourite bulbous flower for the first time this edition. This year, entrants will not only compete for the coveted Golden Bulb Flower, but also for the Koopman & Co Audience Award.
The Lentetuin, which is one of the five major events of the municipality of Hollands Kroon, hopes to welcome around 20,000 visitors again this year. The official opening for invited guests will be performed on Wednesday evening 1 March by Jeroen Duyster, the new director of the Keukenhof. The Keukenhof has been a new cooperation partner for the Lentetuin since this edition. The Lentetuin board is immensely proud of this.
