About Corso Zundert

Considered the largest flower parade in the world, made by volunteers.

Massive artworks created by steel wire, papier-mâché and flowers march down the Bloemencorso Zundert on the first Sunday of September.

Thousands of dahlias, and only dahlias,  decorate the floats, coming from 20 hamlets around Zundert.







Festival Highlights

The first corso took place in 1936, in honour of then-queen Wilhelmina.

It’s a unique Dutch tradition where 8 million dahlias are needed for the entire corso.

Hundreds of float builders of all ages are involved in the planting and growing of the dahlias.

The bloemencorso is a competition where professional and independent jury decides which float  (topping 9 m high and as long as 19 m) is the most beautiful and which hamlet will be crowned the winner.

So, the parade begins 13.30 at the exhibition grounds.

Then the floats roll down Molenstraat Check the website for the route map.
