First held on August 4, 1984 in Rotterdam as the 'Antillian Summer Carnival', the festival, which attracted around 900,000 visitors annually, is now called Zomer Carnaval - Dutch for 'Summer Carnival'.
The carnival is a celebration of Caribbean and Latin American cultures. The climax is the street parade, which is held on the Saturday.
The carnival in 2015 was cancelled due to bad weather, but was successfully held in 2016. We look forward to 2017.
