alive. The Reformed Church, Utrecht tries to work to that goal by
presenting this wonderful Boer Festival in our scenic landscape.

The intention of this feast is to bring back our roots of our Boer
Culture, especially to our youth. In the past 20 years, many of us, has
lost our culture. We would like to share the wonderment of the
Boer culture anew, to bring it back, to reintroduce it to our own and
others and to keep the Boer culture alive for our future generations.
All the stalls will be selling goods that are handmade and self
produced. The unique talent we have discovered, will thrill everyone.
