The Tong Tong Fair (formerly Pasar Malam Besar) won the Promotion Award of The Hague in December 2006 in the category Tourism and Economy. Other recent awards:
Grand Prix of the National Events Awards
This was followed in June 2007 by the presentation of the prestigious Grand Prix of the National Events Awards, the ‘Oscar’ of the Dutch events industry. The Grand Prix is awarded to an event, which in terms of size, standing and allure, has become a real phenomenon. Previous winners include the International Film Festival Rotterdam, North Sea Jazz and the Oerol theatre festival.
In 2008 the organizing Tong Tong Foundation was awarded the Stadspenning by the municipality of The Hague, the highest award of the city.
In 2013, the Tong Tong Foundation received the ‘Haagse Pluim’ (The Hague Plume) from the hands of Mayor Van Aartsen, a distinction to honour citizens or organizations who promote a favourable image of The Hague.
Nice to mention: Queen Beatrix (pictured above) was our special guest in 2003 and 2008.
