Elf Fantasy Fair Haarzuilen 2012 sunday 22 april 2012

 

Every year in April since 2001, the substantial number of 25,000 people from all over Europe come to the largest Fantasy event on the European continent: the Elf Fantasy Fair.

Two-third of the visitors have transformed into orcs, magicians, dragons, knights, vampires, elves, unicorns, gothic lolita, manga comic hero or a combination of these. Every year the costumes are getting more resourceful and more artistic. In the midst of the budding nature of the Castle park which belongs to the largest castle of the Netherlands – Kasteel de Haar fantasy lovers indulge themselves in all that is offered and coveted: medieval music, dancing, lectures, theatre plays, and parades.

 

Sinds 2001 komen elk jaar in april een groeiend aantal mensen uit heel Europa op de Elf Fantasy Fair editie Haarzuilens naar het grootste fantasy evenement dat op het Europese continent georganiseerd wordt: de Elf Fantasy Fair.

Tweederde van deze bezoekers hebben zichzelf omgetoverd tot orc, tovenaar, draak, ridder, vampier, elf, eenhoorn, gothic lolita, manga stripheld of een combinatie daarvan. De kostuums worden elk jaar steeds vindingrijker en kunstzinniger. Temidden van de opbloeiende natuur van het kasteelpark, dat behoort tot het grootste kasteel van Nederland, Kasteel de Haar, dompelen de fantasy liefhebbers zich onder in een aangenaam bad van middeleeuwse muziek, dans, lezingen, theatervoorstellingen en optochten.
