Do you want to participate in the biggest World War II event in the Netherlands in 2019? Do you want to drive in two incredible convoys with up to 600 vehicles? Join us from September 14 – 22 September 2019 for Operation Market Garden 2019!
Register now and participate in the 75th anniversary of the largest combined airborne and ground forces operation of all times. In 2014 more than 500,000 people came to watch our convoys and over 20,000 people visited our basecamp in Veghel. Because of the 75th anniversary, we expect even more people in 2019!
After a fantastic start in Leopoldsburg camp (Belgium), a three-night stay is included, you will drive with us on September 14th, in convoy along Hell's Highway to Veghel, using the same roads as the liberators in 1944.
Then you can stay all week at our basecamp in Veghel, or our camp in Grave (82nd Airborne). At our two camps, there are plenty of activities, all having to do with education, veterans, living history, and re-enactment. Thousands of school children from the nearby villages will visit our camp to learn about our liberators.
In the second weekend of our event, on September 22nd, we will drive in another massive convoy to the road bridge at Nijmegen, where tens of thousands of people will be waiting to welcome us.
For only €75 per person, you can attend both convoys and spend a total of 10 nights on our basecamps. For €50 per person, you can attend in one of the convoys; the staying at our basecamps is included.
