    Episode 35: The 'Vestingsfeest'of Steenwijk

    First aired: Thursday, 13 August 2015 at 17.00 hours

    The 'Vestingsfeest' in Steenwijk is an annual event for the relief of Steenwijk in the Eighty Years War. It is celebrated by a 'Vestingsfeest' which takes place every Wednesday for 6 weeks long. Podium.TV On Tour has traveled to Steenwijk to see how this event is celebrated.

    During the Eighty Years War Steenwijk was in the hands of the Spaniards for a decade. The siege and relief of Steenwijk is the most important historical event. The relief was a heroic act of Johan van den Kornput. His bronze statue now watches over the Oosterpoort.

    Podium.TV On Tour takes a look behind the scenes at the 'Vestingsfeest'. This Wednesday is dominated by an Animal event. In collaboration with a pet store there are all kinds of shows where small (domestic) animals are shown. There have also created a donkey park. For the little ones among us there is a real zoo where you can also have your face painted.
