Last year Rotterdam Unlimited was cancelled due to the corona pandemic. Obviously we immediately announced that we would be back in 2021, still thinking it was safe to say. Unfortunately, current events have caught up with us and things are still not looking good. That’s why Rotterdam Unlimited intends to present its events in 2021, including the iconic Street Parade , in adapted and corona-proof form. So the focus will be on programming in several indoor locations where a door policy with control of vaccination certificates and rapid tests will be possible. Locations such as concerthall De Doelen and Theater Zuidplein and, with regard to the Summer Carnival Streetparade, the Arena of Ahoy is a spectacular replacement. After the Summer Carnival Street Parade, people will be able to enjoy performances by artists from home and abroad. The date is Saturday, July 31, 2021 and the program starts at 1:00 PM.
