The International Gouda Pottery Festival is held on Assumption Day, Thursday, in Holland a long weekend, and because of that most people have Friday off and can enjoy a 4 day weekend.

From the train station you take the direction Centre to the Kleiweg . The Festival is located around the City Town Hall, which dates from 1664.
