Being a crazy little boho girl means you will often find me at bohemian markets, Ibiza fairs and hippie festivals. I spend most of my weekend looking for inspiration, new brands and sometimes just good photo spots. This weekend I had the option to choose between 2 fairs and decided to go to the Hippie Festival in Gorinchem (3o minutes from Utrecht) and boy did I make the right choice.
Arriving around noon the first festival goers were slowly arriving at the fair. No entree fee, which is very nice as most festivals charge hard cash nowadays and located right at the water this place was just oozing good vibes!
More festival inspiration you will love
The entire festival grounds were surrounded by these cute little VW-busses in the most amazing colours. And I'm crazy about these buses so I just couldn't stop making pictures. The owners were all super friendly and were all very eager to tell about the history of the their hippie bus. We were even close to buying one!
Loads of food truck to choose from of course. From original Dutch appel pie, to old school suikerspin to vegan and not so vegan burgers. But it's also perfectly ok to bring your own food and drinks and relax under the trees.
Yes, and there was also a hippie bazaar to make the boho girls happy 🙂 No big brands, no overpriced dresses or bags. Just genuine hippie clothes, a lot of vintage, organic soaps and oils and amazing crochet ponchos (I still regret not buying it!!)
So for next year..put some flowers in your hair, take your picnic basket and dance the night away on the sweet hippie sounds. I know I'll be there again!
The festival is held every year in July and last for 3 days. For more on the Hippie festival Waterpoort and the dates for next year click here.
