Food & Beverages

Were you planning to include a nice bite to eat somewhere in your festival day? You can do that in the park at Noorderzon too! Pick a table at one of the many places to eat or in the Noorderzon Restaurant ‘Alu Alu’ and enjoy a wonderful meal or snack. And when you have enjoyed your show you can have a glass of wine at the Op Zuid wine bar or visit the Spiegelterras Bierbar if you fancy a beer or something else. Even if you don’t have tickets for a show, there’s nothing better than a stroll through the festival park and stopping off somewhere for a bite to eat or some other refreshment. Check out the Carrousel, Bar op Zuid or the Theetuin. The latter is a good place to keep an eye on your children from, if they’re having a blast at Rotor!

There are various places in the festival park where you can fill your water bottle, courtesy of Waterbedrijf Groningen and Noorderzon. There are all sorts of entrepreneurs – many of them local – providing all sorts of fare, so you can easily spend the entire day in the park.
