Summer Festival 2021

is cancelled

Everyone is searching for happiness. We can find joy in the little things of everyday life, and excitement when we go to see loved ones or celebrate something altogether. The Radhadesh Summer Festival aims to give all of that and so much more in a unique atmosphere. Annually the Radhadesh community puts together a festival to bring us all together to connect and to celebrate another beautiful summer. The Summer festival in Radhadesh started already from 1985, just five years after acquiring the castle. It started very small mainly for the community, but soon spread out to be very inclusive and bring loved ones together in a happy environment. 

Radhadesh is a community located at the Chateau de Petite Somme, on the hills of the Ardennes, near Durbuy. This community is a unique blend of western and eastern cultures. As such the festival promises to offer you trinkets from all over the world and entertainment to make you laugh, be amazed, and bring you closer. Since 2011, Radhadesh combined the Summer Festival with Holi. The festival of colors. 

What is Holi?

Summer is a season full of colours joy and peace. Join us in our annual Summer Festival and as a tribute to the summer play Holi with us. HOLI is a spiritual event originating in India which is generally held in early spring and signifies new life. HOLI is a spiritual event originating in India which is generally held in early spring and signifies new life, growth and new beginnings. Holi, therefore, reminds us to colour our life with love, faith, and a generous spirit. It calls us to give and receive. And best of all, it’s just great fun!

We get lost in colour, forget about our usual identity, and experience life — and each other — from a whole new perspective. Although the festival is mainly held in Spring, we all live in Belgium and therefore what better thing to do than move it into the middle of Summer where the weather is more suitable, in this way combining it with our annual Summer Festival (since 1980’s) for even more fun. See you all then and lets make this the Finest Belgian Colour Party!!


From live music acts by various talented youth to the incredible dance performance by the renown Samadhi Dance Company from Amsterdam, we make sure there is something for your taste.
