Ten years of Cittaslow Midden-Delfland


Cittaslow Jubilee Week
Midden-Delfland is ten years of Cittaslow. A good reason for a jubilee week for residents, partners and everyone who cares about Cittaslow. From Saturday 9 to Sunday 17 June you can experience everything in Midden-Delfland. The program is entirely dedicated to our special Midden-Delfland and the inspiring ideas of Cittaslow. Below you see the program.

For example, you can make a unique cruise with a barge and horse and taste fair food on the Slow Food market. From the water or the quay at the corn mill De Korpershoek is the Friday of June 15th enjoy the premiere of the Cittaslow hymn, a piece of music specially composed for Cittaslow. This is followed by a Mill Concert. A nice musical taster of the Midden-Delfland Days with the theme 'Midden-Delfland, there's music in it!' During Schippop, children transform recyclable materials into artworks. And a traveling theater tells 1,200 children at kindergartens, playgroups and primary schools in a funny way about Cittaslow.
