The Redhead Days 2016 is going to be an amazing party. But we need your support! You can decide just how big and awe-inspiring it will be. Because the more we raise, the bigger the celebration. You can make it happen!

Join us and help us with your support!

From 2 till 5 September we'll celebrate the 11th edition of the Redhead Days in Breda!. An unique event with more than 6.000 redheads from all over the world.

Join us and help us with your support! With your help, we can make the event possible and even more memorable. The more we raise, the more cool activities we can organise and the bigger the party will be. Help us make it the celebration of the century!

The festivals main source of sponsorship in recent years has been the support from crowdfunders like you. This year we face an even bigger challenge, because some of the main sponsors and subsidizers decided not to support us anymore. So this year more then ever we rely on your help!

How can you help us? Simply by buying our perks or making a donation, you'll become part owner of the festival: your contribution directly influences the continuity of the event and quality of the festivities! In a nutshell: you decide the size and the awesomeness of the festivities. So go ahead and help us kick it up a notch or two!

Let's celebrate

Redheads feel proud to be part of the event and of biggest online redhead community in the world. It allows them to recognise themselves in and connect with their fellow redheads. When they go home, they'll have gained one of the best experiences of their lives and many will return again next year, to rekindle the new friendships they made and to experience that unique feeling of for once not being able to be identified in a crowd, simply by the colour of their hair.

Imagine all kinds of cultural and entertaining activities in one place: art exhibitions, dance, music, fashion, theatre, photography, good food and great company. Wouldn't that be wonderful? Now imagine thousands of natural redheads in that same place. Redheads from all corners of the world, all ages and all walks of life. Picture yourself being one of them... How exhilliarating would that be?

We've got some ambitious plans, hoping to provide you with some unsurpassed activities involving the works of world-renowned artists, wonderful musicians, and a few more things that remain a secret for the time being. All we need to do now, is to raise the funds we need to put these plans into action!

Multicoloured Red

Theme this year: Multicoloured Red. Because every redhead is unique, but they are also connected with each other with their own shade of redhair.

About the festival

While the Redhead Days may have been founded more or less by accident in 2005 during an exhibition of paintings by Bart Rouwenhorst, it's definitely grown into a world-famous happening in the 10 years since. In 2015, some 6,000 natural redheads from more than 80 countries arrived in Breda for the event of a lifetime. They enjoyed more than 60 different activities, including photo shoots, a pub crawl, fashion shows, a city campsite, lectures and workshops about red hair, a high tea, hot air balloon flights, a laser show and much more! The festival's visitors describe the experience as 'meeting thousands of long lost relatives'. The onlookers describe the enormous crowd of natural redheads as nothing short of a work of art, and a true sight to behold.

The Redhead Days Festival 2016 is going to be brilliant! On 2, 3, 4 and 5 September 2016, even more people are going to make their way to the Dutch city of Breda, where they'll participate in a wider variety of activities than ever before. They'll feel proud to be part of the event, which allows them to recognise themselves in and connect with their fellow redheads. When they go home, they'll have gained one of the best experiences of their lives and many will return again next year, to rekindle the new friendships they made and to experience that unique feeling of for once not being able to be identified in a crowd, simply by the colour of their hair.

About us

We are a non-profit foundation, powered by a growing team of 100 volunteers. Some of us are redheads, some of us have redheaded relatives, and most of us just love this amazing festival. Each of us dedicates our time and passion, with only the festival itself as a reward; but what a reward that is! We love seeing all those beautiful people, seeing their joy and hearing their feedback.
