About

Untitled design-6

Every June, since 2010, the waters of ’s-Hertogenbosch (the Netherlands) provide the venue for the Bosch Parade. A wondrous armada of vessels and objects inspired by the work and ideas of Medieval painter Jheronimus Bosch. Artists from all disciplines (art, theatre, dance, music, architecture) collaborate with groups of enthusiastic amateurs and volunteers to create this artistic, water-borne parade. This spawns not only a creative floating parade by and for the city, but also an extensive creativity network throughout the city.

What is Bosch Parade?
Since 2010, the Bosch Parade takes to the waters of ’s-Hertogenbosch every June. A wondrous armada of vessels and objects inspired by the work and ideas of Medieval painter Jheronimus Bosch. Artists from all disciplines (art, theatre, dance, music, architecture) collaborate with groups of enthusiastic amateurs and volunteers to create this artistic, water-borne parade. This spawns not only a creative floating parade by and for the city, but also a wide-ranging creativity network throughout the city.

Free
Bosch Parade is free to watch from the city walls and embankments along the Dommel as well as from the foot of the Citadel. The Parade starts at the Wilhelminaplein (former Heetmanplein) and ends near the first bridge on the Zuid-Willemsvaart.

Next event
The event we’ve planned for 2017 will be postponed until June 2018. Unfortunately we are running out of time to commission the realisation of the art-projects this year, therefore we decided to skip a season and continue all preparations for next year. This way we can keep our quality standards high!

Dates will be settled in the fall of this year
