Kermis in Den Haag  

From (collection): Museum De Gevangenpoort, Hendrik Pothoven
The Hague Fair was organized from the 14th Century. From 1581 this 'free market' was located near the Gevangenpoort at Buitenhof, Lange Vijverberg and Lange Voorhout. All strata of The Hague population visited this Fair.
In 1887 the Fair was abolished by the church. According to the church the Fair could be described as a heathen festival that contained 'nothing but fierce shouting and wild encounters, that were a shame on a country that calls itself Christian’.
Beginning of the 20th century the Fair was re-introduced in The Hague.

Painting by Hendrik Pothoven (1726-1807). View in the direction of the Gevangenpoort. At a stall at the front of the Hofvijver we see the Stadtholder Prince Willem V and his family, who always visited the Fair.
