Roze Maandag typically occurs on the Monday of the Tilburgse Kermis week. On this day, the fairgrounds are adorned with pink decorations and participants are encouraged to wear pink clothing or accessories as a symbol of support for the LGBTQ+ community.

The origins of Roze Maandag trace back to the late 1990s when a group of LGBTQ+ individuals decided to organize a gathering during the Tilburgse Kermis to create visibility and promote acceptance of diversity. Since then, Roze Maandag has grown into one of the largest LGBTQ+ events in the Netherlands, drawing thousands of people from various backgrounds each year.

During Roze Maandag, the fair offers a wide range of LGBTQ+-themed activities, performances and entertainment. There are stages featuring live music, drag shows, dance performances and other forms of artistic expression. Additionally, community organizations and advocacy groups set up information booths to raise awareness about LGBTQ+ issues, provide support resources and promote equality and acceptance.

Roze Maandag serves as a platform for celebrating diversity, fostering inclusivity and advocating for LGBTQ+ rights. It is a testament to the progressive and welcoming atmosphere of the Tilburgse Kermis, emphasizing the fair’s commitment to creating a space where everyone can feel respected, accepted and free to be themselves.
