When TEFAF comes to town, the whole of Maastricht seems to get into the artistic spirit. This feeling is most evident in the MECC, which hosts the exclusive and striking art fair each year. The phrase ‘art fair’ does not do the event justice, as what happens at and during TEFAF can scarcely be expressed in words. It seems as if the city is enchanted by the sense of extra elegance that TEFAF exudes, bringing together refined art connoisseurs gather and giving curious visitors the opportunity to admire and even purchase the impressive pieces on display. The city hosts many activities, exhibitions, and dinners that stay true to the TEFAF spirit. Pull up a chair, take part, and experience the international allure that TEFAF brings to Maastricht.
