Every year over 1.5 million people visit the fair, making it the most popular event in Holland. Generally speaking the attractions are hypermodern and spectacular. 250 attractions and rides ranging from rollercoasters and catapults to bumper cars spread across 4.5 kilometres in the city centre. It is the biggest funfair in the Benelux.

Part of the festival is the annual festivity called Pink Monday. It was started 25 years ago, with 350 000 visitors, and nowadays it is one of the biggest gay emancipation and integration events in Holland. On the last night of the fair, the attractions are “buried” the traditional way. The fair closes at 22:00 and a long line of people and musicians walk from the Heuvelse Kerk to the Piushaven for some spectacular fireworks.
