Thank you!

We look back on a fantastic weekend! With 48 activities, 28 locations and hundreds of stories, we have reached a large audience in Maastricht, created very special experiences and received many positive reactions.

This of course was not possible without you!
We would like to thank you for that and hope to work together again in the future. See you next year!

Once Upon a Town. A city festival with stories about (un) known creative makers and local legends. The festival is an ode to Maastricht, its inhabitants and the age-old tradition of telling stories (through).

Discover the festival on 3 theme routes. Each with a unique program on Saturday & Sunday. Miss nothing? Then just follow them all! Of course you can also put together your own route. Take a look at “All stories” for a complete overview.

The Migration Route

The Migration Route is the main route of the festival. It shows you the special highlights of the festival and approaches the theme of migration from different perspectives.

The City & Art Route

The Art & City Route offers a behind-the-scenes look at the city’s many artists’ studios and an exhibition of stories from artists who have studied various approaches to the Migration theme. Discover the relationship between the artworks, stories and the experience of the city.

The People Route

This route focuses on the residents of Maastricht. Follow this route to listen and learn from yourself and other people from Maastricht.
