Red hair is a true rarity, occurring in less than 2% of the human population. This makes Redhead Days all the more special – it’s the only event in the world where 100% of the attendants are redheads.

Taking place every September in the Dutch town of Breda, the festival was founded in 2005 by Dutch painter Bart Rouwenhorst. Inspired by Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s paintings of flame-haired women, Rouwenhorst placed an advert in the local paper in search of red-haired models to pose for a painting. He was stunned by the response, receiving over 150 replies. Rouwenhorst subsequently organised a gathering, and Redhead Days was born. The festival has since rapidly grown in popularity, now attracting thousands of redheads annually from all over the world.
