Liberation Festival & Children’s Flea Market 2018

The National Liberation Museum 1944-1945 in Groesbeek will once again hold its Liberation Festival with various fun activities for all ages on Sunday 16 September 2018.

The Liberation Festival will be open throughout the day from 10:30 am - 4:30 pm with a colourful children’s flea market. Tickets are only €3 per person (which includes museum entrance, festivities and parking). Entrance is free for children under 18.

Various musicians will perform, including Delta Swing Band and The Cowpokes. Exodus Evacuation Group will act out the '44-'45 evacuation and kids can have their faces painted or participate in a hula hoop workshop by La Hoop. There are radio-controlled military model airplanes and classic cars present on the museum grounds as well. You can also take a look at the radio show with transmitting and receiving equipment from WWII or create a fun historic picture with a GreenScreen offered by PicsPoint Photography.

Grateful Generation Tours organises exciting fieldtrips in an authentic Willy’s MB from WWII (2 to 3 persons) along the Market Garden battlefields. The short 30-minute tours (offered every half hour between 10:30 am and 4:30 pm) are fun for all ages, but a definite must for the youth. Costs: €7.50 pp, cash only, (€3 for festivities, museum entrance and parking not included). Reservations can be made on the spot on the day of the festival.

Lastly, The Euregio Vrijheidswandeling (EU Region Freedom Walk) also takes place on 16 September during the festival and goes straight through the museum. This annual walking event focuses on walking in freedom and experiencing liberty, democracy and human rights. The freedom walk makes a stop at the Liberation Museum, so all participants are granted free admission to the museum. For more information, please visit www.wandeleninvrijheid.nl.

You can take your place at the children’s flea market from 9:00 am and the market is only meant for children. Reservations are not necessary. Parking is available at the museum’s forecourt or around the museum (there will be signs).
