we continue our dream at

Elfia Arcen 2021 SOLD OUT! The largest outdoor cosplay and costume event in Europe, Elfia, is completely sold out! There are only single parking tickets still available: Parking Saturday / Parking Sunday

Prepare & Dare

The last stretch is the hardest, so…. to inspire you in the last days before the gates of Elfia swing open: an episode from “Journey to Elfia” by Roberto & Silvan: “How to do Elven Make Up?”

The gates of Elfia will swing open on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 September! With a clear transfer profile and appropriate measures, the municipality of Venlo has given permission to organize the ‘Kingdom of Elfia’ – as the costume party is officially called – in Kasteeltuinen Arcen. A maximum number of guests has been established that may enter Elfia according to regulated time slots and with social distancing.

There are mainly walking acts, spread throughout the park, and there are only seats at the stages. The renowned Elfia energy will sparkle everywhere with folk music, small theater acts, themed catering, sales stands and above all with respect for each other and the nature of the castle gardens.

Knowing the Elfia public, each visitor and participant will also take their own responsibility and respect the applicable Corona measures. We as the organization of the castle gardens and of Elfia itself are at least as grateful as all Elfians that the ‘Kingdom of Elfia’ can and may take place safely.

Particularities:

  • Elfia can continue as a flow-through activity. This means, for example, time locks that allow Elfians to arrive staggered, and also social distance measures, so that visitors can always keep ‘Corona distance’ from each other.
  • Elfia can continue as a flow-through activity. This means, for example, time locks that allow Elfians to arrive staggered, and also social distance measures, so that visitors can always keep ‘Corona distance’ from each other.
  • A Covid test proof etc is not necessary at the moment because Elfia is officially not an event but a flow activity, and therefore a different protocol applies. But if the government unexpectedly makes vaccination proof / negative test etc mandatory at the last minute, we will have to follow it. If that happens, we will of course communicate it. Keep a close eye on this website.
  • the castle itself will be closed but a lot of activities will take place in the front and back
  • bring a face mask for the indoor locations (toilets, fixed catering locations) just to be sure, so that you can always walk safely here.
  • by the way, toilets will be free to keep queues as short as possible and avoid cash transfer
