For more than a decade, the Feel at Home International Community Fair has been an annual celebration of the uniquely connected and cosmopolitan community of The Hague: providing a warm welcome to newcomers and a friendly meeting place for internationals already living here.  An event where everyone and anyone in our diverse community can Feel at Home.

In previous years, the Feel at Home International Community Fair has been a successful one-day event attracting as many as 200 exhibitors and 4,000 visitors to The Hague City Hall.  Unfortunately due to current COVID restrictions, we cannot hold this as a live event – but feel it’s more important than ever that the community continues to connect.

The centrepiece of the Fair will be the live streaming of events via two simultaneous channels from 11:00 to 17:00.  You can also engage with Sports, Social & Community and service providers via their online virtual stands.

Channel 1 – Information and Panel Shows

The shows are:

  • Welcome to The Hague (by The Hague International Centre)
  • Work and Careers (by The Hague International Centre)
  • No Dutch?  No problem – Volunteer! (by Volunteer The Hague)
  • Mortgages (Sponsored by ABN AMRO)
  • Education
    • Special Needs Education
    • Choosing an International school
    • Further Education (sponsored by Leiden University and The Hague University of Applied Sciences)
  • Impact of Covid-19 on the International Community (by ICAP, ACCESS and Dutch News)
  • Making the most of a mobile life (by The Mobile Life)

Channel 2 – Enjoying Life in The Hague

During the first hour from 11:30 – 12:30 we will have a special program specifically for children.  Thereafter we have four programs focusing on Sport, Art & Culture, Community Groups and Nightlife. These programs will include a live Q&A with a local “guide” who can answer your questions as well as screening videos from the Expat and International Community. Every hour we will also feature an Expat’s story as well as the Dutch “Word of the Hour”.

All streaming on both channels will be recorded. After the Fair they will be freely available for viewing and can be used for marketing purposes by individual contributors.

Jessie Rodell Educational Award  

Normally, at the Fair we ask visitors to donate to a designated charity. This year in commemoration of Jessie Rodell’s service to the International Community in The Hague we are asking visitors to donate to the Jessie Rodell Educational Award.  This International Community-wide award will help a person in The Netherlands further their education and has been set up with the help of the FAWCO Foundation.
