Now in its 34th year the Nationale Zomerbloemententoonstelling is sure to attract huge crowds to the Oude Kerk (Old Church) in Naaldwijk.

Venue: the Old Church in Naaldwijk.

The four-day event, under the guidance of floral designer Heleen Valstar includes a quality competition with the country’s summer flower growers competing for coveted awards.
