Warmond is a small, but vibrant community. The village has less then 5000 inhabitants, yet it is located in one of the busiest areas of Europe: the Randstad, in the middle between Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. During the summer period, but especially in June, almost every week there is some kind of an event, organized by locals for locals: the second weekend in June the Stichting Zeilvaart Warmond
organizes the Westlander Zeildagen
, on or around Solstice the Vrienden in Warmond
organize the Leede Concert and at the end of the month there is the annual Kaagweek
. In between, the Vereniging het Oude Raadhuis
have art exibitions in their wonderfull old town hall building and celebrate this year their 25th aniversary with a huge painting and an open air dinner in "Park Groot Leerust".
The Leede Concert featured this year Roby Lakatos and his Orchestra
. The band comes from Hungary and plays the best gipsy music in the world. The boats in the Warmond "harbour" are filled with people from Warmond and nearby villages on invitation of the sponsors of the event. The proceedings are destined for local, kids related, activities.
