Pink Monday, in Dutch ‘Roze Maandag’, is the most popular theme day of the yearly funfair in Tilburg, Netherlands. Last year there were over 300,000 visitors. Pink Monday has become one of the largests events that gives attention to gay rights and integration in the Netherlands. It is about acceptance, tolerance and bringing people together. This results in very fun day with lot’s of music, drinking, dressing in pink and having fun. If you’re in the Netherlands during this period I really suggest to join the party and of course wear something pink.
