Since 2013, the Dutch folkband Rapalje has a festival of its own: Zomerfolk!

The Rapalje Zomerfolk Festival is being held at the Zonneweide of the municipal park in the heart of Groningen. This beautiful location is the ideal place for our journey through the world of Folk!

Fantastic bands from home and abroad, a huge selection of stands that sell the most unique products and of course delicious food and drinks: you will find all this and more at Zomerfolk!

Our festival has a busy and varied program for all ages. From archery competitions, workshops and children’s Highland Games to relaxing in the grass with a drink while the sounds of beautiful folk music sound around you. And of course you can dance anytime, anywhere! The Rapalje Summer Folk Festival is a celebration for everyone! If you’d like to see more of what there is to hear, see and do at our festival, please select an item from the drop-down menu at the top.
