Restaurants and cafés
The Parade festival square is a household name in and around ‘s Hertogenbosch. Understandably so, because with its cosy restaurant tents, outdoor cafés and food trucks, the atmosphere on the square is positively exuberant. And thanks to the view of the magnificent St John’s Cathedral you could easily imagine yourself sitting in one of those French village squares.
In addition to theatre and music shows for all ages, the square is the place to go for lunch, drinks, a quick bite to eat or a nice long dinner. Cuisines vary from Dutch fish to Italian and from vegetarian to steaks and burgers. For those who like a grander experience there is the à la carte restaurant. A Volkswagen beetle serves as a coffee & tea booth. A chip shop offers the yummiest organic fries, and there is more.
The festival square is also the point of departure for the shuttle buses that will take you to the festival sites. When the show is over, the shuttle bus takes you right back to the festival square. And when the clocks of St John’s strike 11.30 PM, we go dancing at the BLVRD Theater, where you will find a different band performing every night of the festival.
