Zwolse Birdmarket February 29, 2020


On February 29, 2020 JH Birdevents B.V. and the IJsselhallen Zwolle organises, in the IJsselhallen, for the 71st time the Zwolle Birdmarket.

The market consists of an area of no less than 12,500 m2 and 3,000 running meters of sales tables. With more than 500 exhibitors and more than 7000 visitors, the largest market in Western Europe and perhaps the entire world. During the market, 65 volunteers are working under the supervision of the market committee to ensure that everything runs smoothly. There is close collaboration with veterinarians, a group of security employees, first aid, the GGD, the employees of JH Birdevents B.V. and the IJsselhallen Zwolle.

The huge range of birds and accessories offers bird lovers an unforgettable day out! You can wander for hours along the various sales tables, with tens of thousands of legally permitted birds, which are offered for sale, but also accessories such as food, housing, reading material, and other necessities. Bird lovers can wander for hours along the sales tables, and if you get tired, you can, while enjoying a cup of coffee, just blow out on the terrace.

The large interest from abroad, including in particular Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, England, Spain, Portugal, Poland, Czech Republic, and Denmark, shows that the Zwolle Birdmarket is highly regarded internationally. The organization will once again succeed in getting enthusiasts from outside the Netherlands to Zwolle.

During the Zwolse Birdmarket, enthusiasts can wander for hours along the many legally permitted birds that are offered for sale.
In addition to the enormous collection of tens of thousands of birds, many other items are also offered for sale. Such as books, cages, lighting, and food. The various special clubs – such as those of, for example, the form and post-canaries, zebra finches, Japanese gulls, and parakeets – are also present.


Strict control

The supplied birds are strictly controlled. If the birds do not meet the required conditions, they will be refused at the entrance. In addition, there are two veterinarians present throughout the day, who keep a close eye on everything. Selling out of transport cages are not allowed at the Zwolle Birdmarket. Birds must be offered for sale in proper cages and the cages may not be overcrowded. This is strictly supervised.


All birds and cages on the Zwolse Birdmarket must comply with these guidelines:

    1. Fresh water and/or fruit is always available for the birds. The diet must be adjusted to the type of birds.

    5. European birds and their hybrids must be ringed closed. This ring needs design and diameter, in accordance with the Nature Conservation Act.
    6. Guidelines with which the cages must comply:
      • The cages must be clean, complete, equipped with sufficient perches and adapted to the type of bird that is kept indoors.
      • Cages should NOT be on the ground!
      • Selling out of transport cages are not allowed. Transport cages are only allowed for transport.
      • The height of the cage must be sufficient. The bird must be able to stand/sit on the perch. (As stated in the NBvV rules).
