The Northern Affair event is held every two months and takes place at the Mini-Mall. It’s a creative market with food, fashion and live music. You can expect small catwalk shows, local musicians that give a performance and a market with local entrepreneurs and artists selling and promoting their stuff. The atmosphere is really relaxed and a lot of cool and trendy people from Rotterdam come to this event.

Local artists


If you are looking for some sociability on Sunday and you like to meet hipsters from Rotterdam, then you definitely must visit The Northern Affair. Crab a beer at Doortje & Gussie or a cup of coffee at Lokaal and wander along the stalls at the Sneak and Peak market at the right side of the Mini-Mall. Here you find like twenty stands with vintage clothes, paintings of young local artists, cup cakes, jewellery and much more. Like music? There is also a small podium where singer songwriters and bands are playing the whole day.

Catwalk show

Inside the Mini-Mall there’s also a lot to do during The Northern affair. In the central hall with its beautiful arches, a tangle of stuff from local entrepreneurs can be found. Most of it is vintage and really cool. Don’t miss the catwalk show where young fashion designers from Rotterdam show their collection. Opening hours
The event is held on the first Sunday of the month.
