Pay attention! Registration closes on July 1.
Register now for Operation Market Garden 2019 and participate in the 75th anniversary of the largest combined airborne and ground forces operation of all times.
In 2014 more than 500,000 people came to watch our convoys and over 20,000 people visited our basecamp in Veghel. Because
of the 75th anniversary, we expect even more people in 2019!
We will kick off our event in Leopoldsburg where our start camp opens on September 12th. A two-night stay is included and you are invited to participate in the events in the village. On Saturday, September 14th we will drive in a massive convoy along Hell’s Highway to Veghel, using the same roads as the liberators in 1944.
You can stay all week at our basecamp DZA Vlagheide where there are plenty of activities, that all have to do with education, veterans, living history, and re-enactment. Thousands of school children from the nearby villages will visit our camp to learn about our liberators.
In the second weekend of our event, on Sunday, September 22nd we will drive in another massive convoy to the road bridge at Nijmegen, where tens of thousands of people will be waiting to welcome us.
For just €75 per person, you can attend both convoys and spend a total of 10 nights on our basecamp. For €50 per person, you can attend one of the convoys; staying at our basecamp is included. Kids born after 1-1-2015 are free of charge when they are with a participating adult.
