Het Parcours (The Course or Track) is a weekend where theatres, theatre groups, museums and other cultural institutions present their programme for the new season. Amateurs and professionals organise a variety of activities and give performances at various locations in and around Maastricht.
Also important for the cultural activites taking place this year is to shine the spotlight on the Euregional character of the event. Among other activities, Het Parcours will be teaming up with Open Monument Day and Europe Calling. At last count, more than thirty locations have confirmed their participation in this event. Last year saw approximately 40,000 visitors to Het Parcours, showing a renewed interest in the official opening of the cultural season here in Maastricht.
