About the festival
For 23 consecutive years, the Western Experience has played hosts to fans in January. In 2017, the winter edition gets a sunny sibling: The Western Experience Summer Festival enriches the summer season with a county fair in western style. It’s set for Saturday July 22nd and Sunday 23rd at the wonderful estate of the Equestrian Centre Deurne.
 
Festival Director Ivo van der Bijl explains: “It’s a new festival but with a rich history. The Western Experience winter edition at the Brabanthallen in Den Bosch boasts a history of nearly a quarter of a century. And after seeing continuous growth in the last 3 years, we recognized the wish from our audience for an additional family-friendly summer edition. So, when the Equestrian Centre Deurne became a possible location it was very easy to decide on.“ The magnificent grounds, measuring 40 acres, offers many new opportunities for a summer festival with its familiar friendly atmosphere. The Western Experience Summer Festival won’t be a direct copy of the winter-edition: ”First, we plan more than three-quarters of all activities outdoors. For example, there’s plenty of space for a large music stage. Secondly, the location offers the possibility to add many new hands-on activities in addition to our familiar elements. Visitors can try different outdoor activities, sports, arts, and crafts. And thirdly, more space means we are able to offer more diversity and captivating experiences for the entire family. “
