Parade of Torches


It’s a tradition in Eindhoven that the Parade of Torches will be organised for solidarity and peace on December 24th (Christmas Eve). In 1992, the Parade of Torches took place for the very first time when migrants were attacked in the German village of Sollingen. Ever since that incident, the parade focuses on peace, freedom and solidarity. Each year, thousands of people come together at the Wilhelminaplein to draw attention to the diversity of the Eindhoven community.
