Op Roakeldais:

"Op Roakeldais" is an international folk dance festival in the Groningen Warffum account every year. The name of the festival, first held in 1966, means in Groningen "The Pursuit of Happiness." The word is derived from the Latin Miraculum Dei, which translates as an "A miracle of God." Every year in the last week of June marks the festival with folk dance groups from around the world. The foreign guests are dancing in the area housed with host families.

 

The Saturday is the highlight of the week. The afternoon is a parade with all dance groups through the village, after which the evening a big dance event is scheduled. The festival takes place in the large sports hall (Translated from Wikipedia).
