The Zwollse Birdmarket becomes AviMarkt-Europe


Zwolse Vogelmarkt – AviMarkt-Europe – February 13, 2021

 !!! NEWS !!!


Saturday, February 13, 2021 is the new date for the 72nd edition of the bird market!


As some of you may know, the IJsselhallen Zwolle will soon close its doors. This forced us to look for a new location. This location had to meet the minimum requirements to allow the bird market to continue without restrictions.




We chose the Brabanthallen ’s-Hertogenbosch!
A location that can guarantee the future of the bird market with an available space of more than 16000 m2, more than 4000 parking spaces and that is easy to reach.
At this new location it is of course again possible to buy and / or visit the many legally permitted birds and related products that are offered for sale.




Because of the departure from Zwolle, we were also forced to change the name as it was local.
We chose AviMarkt-Europe which refers to the birds (avis in Latin), the market and the international reputation of the market.
We look forward to welcoming you here on Saturday, February 13, 2021.


The start date for the rental of the stands and the sale of the entrance tickets will be announced shortly.

!!! Important info for sellers !!!


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.
    2. There is sufficient food available for the birds. This must be visible, preferably in containers.
    3. Health: sick, damaged or injured birds are not allowed. Dead and sick birds must be removed immediately.
    4. Birds of prey, owls, quail and baby parrots are not allowed. Some birds are only allowed under certain conditions.
    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).
      • About two birds per cage, cage size must be adapted to the size of birds. For show cages there is an exception, then the following conditions apply.
      • Standard showcage: up to 4 birds, up to the size of a color canary.
      • Large showcage: up to 4 Neophema or birds of the same size.
      • If you do not use show cages, our quality inspector will determine if your cages are allowed.
