About street arts festival Spoffin

Performing arts where the audience is: in the streets, squares, parks and other public spaces. This is the mission of Spoffin, the international circus, dance and street theatre festival. Since 2010, the festival has been held on the last weekend of August against the medieval backdrop of Amersfoort's city centre. The festival offers a curious and open-minded audience an exciting mix of summer carelessness and enticing complexity. High quality, low barriers: that's why visitors decide what to pay after each and every show.
