The town of Veendam sits in the province of Groningen in the Netherlands; with a population of around 27,000, Veendam is known for being very supportive of cultural events, sponsoring an annual musical and literary event called Streektoaldag-Veendam in September through its organization called the Bogdike Foundation (De Stichting Bogdike).

Excerpt from Bogdike website about Streektoaldag-Veendam (translated/paraphrased from Dutch):

The Bogdike Foundation organizes an annual street festival called Streektoaldag every September featuring musicians and poets who perform along the town streets of Veendam (Groningen, Netherlands), or in vacant retail stores, creating opportunity for cultural enrichment, musical and literary promotion, and a productive way to highlight the business/retail opportunities in the area.”

About the Bogdike Foundation (translated from Dutch):

Bogdike Foundation was founded by enthusiastic people of Veendam who for years organized events in the fields of music, theater and other cultural activities.
By joining forces, the Bogdike foundation has provided Veendam more opportunities in the field of networking, knowledge and experience, and also more options when it comes to applying for grants and sponsorships (for Veendam’s cultural programs and events).
