Welex, lawyers and economists in Marbella, celebrates the return of the famous and great Dutch event at the Costa del Sol.


The herring festival is held every year in the Netherlands around the end of June, as a celebration of the arrival of the new herring from Holland. It is a cultural event in the Netherlands, which the Marbella Dutch Business Club and its partners organize every year to maintain this tradition among the Dutch community on the Costa del Sol. It is an event where funds are raised to donate to an NGO, and where the treasurer of the Club, Eduard Megens, makes a great contribution and support to this magnificent event.


After two years of pandemic, in which the celebration of this event was limited, the Marbella Dutch Business Club (MDBC) organized last June, the awaited Haring Party in Marbella. About 180 people could meet again to celebrate the famous international party on the Costa del Sol of the Dutch jet set with guests of 9 different nationalities, and in which Welex lawyers and economists in Marbella, participated as an assistant and sponsor.


This year, the event took place in the heart of Divot, a gastro grill restaurant for those who really want to live a gastronomic experience at the foot of Puerto Banus, Marbella.



Surrounded by the magnificent golf course of Puerto Banus, guests chatted and tasted the famous appetizer “Hollandse Nieuwe”, a tasty herring served in different versions and for all tastes, accompanied by an unbeatable selection of wines and the famous Dutch Gin. The event continued with the music of Ger Vos, who once again this year got all the guests on the dance floor. After the appetizer, a selection of gourmet Spanish tapas was served, which delighted all the attendees.


The Golden Herring Award


Charo Van Hulst, had the honor to receive this year the famous golden statuette, an award that is given every year at this festival in order to reward the effort to integrate the Dutch culture in the Costal del Sol. Charo, apart from her great effort to promote culture, has also carried out many charity projects in the Costa del Sol.


The most beautiful hat


As every year, the award for the most beautiful pamela of the party, becomes the center of attention of all the guests, one more tradition that could not miss in this edition of the Haring Party 2022 in Marbella. Marrianne de Wit and her elegant cream colored pamela, with fine details of different colors that gave her headdress rose petal shapes, was the winner of a dinner for two at the Divot Restaurant in Puerto Banus where the event was held.



Cudeca Foundation


As is tradition every year with the organization of this event in Marbella, the MDBC gives its support to a charitable cause. It has collaborated in previous years with associations such as Free a Girl or Debra Foundation, and this year with Cudeca Foundation. Cudeca is responsible for providing the best service, assistance and quality in palliative care for patients with cancer and other advanced and terminal diseases in Malaga, so Dutch Business Club in Marbella and its main sponsors, managed to raise a percentage of ticket sales to donate to this important cause.
