Additionally, you can dine at different restaurants taking part in the event, so there is no need to go home! During ShoppingNight the Denneweg will transform into Saint-Tropez at its best; everywhere on the street (French) live music, like the ‘Haagse’ chansonband Tess et les Moutons, will be played under cosy colourful lights.


French style
A real French market can be found on the Grote Marktstraat where you can buy typical French products and in the Spuistraat and the surrounding streets you will find a crazy swimming band parade. Take your photo at the Volvo Ocean Race Klompjol which docked down specifically for ShoppingNight or catch your breath with your friends at the XXL Party at Sea beach chair that can be found in the Hoogstraat.
