Veluwe 2 Days – 30 and 31 october 2021



CORONA
In 2020 we had to cancel the Veluwe 2-Days due to corona/covid. Although the pandemic is not yet under control, we have started preparations for the Veluwe 2-Days 2021. At this moment, it is expected that outdoor events can be organized again from 1 July onwards.
We hope to be able to organize the 2-Days as in previous years. However, we are dependent on the national corona/covid restrictions and measures, which means that the format of the event may need to be adjusted.

We will keep you informed of further developments.
