Elephant Parade loves to be in the Netherlands. It's the place where it all began back in Rotterdam, 2007. We are thrilled, thanks to Van Til Interieur, to continue our onward journey to Alkmaar. Our travelling herd of 20 elephants and one new elephant will be on display at Van Til Interieur from 18th November - 13th January 2020.
The event will take place within this heritage centre, which showcases modern design, contemporary classics, bedroom comfort, exclusive lighting, textiles and home accessories.
Van Til Interieur also has a rich history. It is now run by a fourth-generation family member and has always been at the forefront of innovation as well as an integral part of the local community. The first furniture store opened in 1904, and on their website you can find an impressive account of successfully, overcoming the many changes occurring within the turn of the century.
But now, something entirely new. They will use their public space to raise awareness for elephants. The store will be filled with the herd as well as information on Asian elephants, the projects Elephant Parade support, and why it's essential to secure a safe and happy future for pachyderms.
A brand-new elephant will be painted live onsite by Dutch artist David van der Meer as part of the Christmas festivities on 27th December. During the event period, you can decorate an Elephant Parade Artbox and have a chance to win great prizes.
Throughout the event, there will be a treasure hunt for all ages to find all the elephant statues hidden within the store.
Warm yourself up at Alkmaar with the joy of our life-size, baby elephants for these colder, winter months.
“We are delighted and proud to host the Elephant Parade for nearly two months. A unique collection of prominent artists, which fits perfectly into our design centre.”
