Hop on the train or take your bike to wander in the streets of Brussels during all the fun events and festivals. We have made you a list of things to do during the summer weeks. The choice is up to you!
1. Festivals & music
Bal National 20.07

Sablon Music Festival 10.08 // 12.08
Let’s get jazzy at the Sablon, known for its chocolatiers. This time however, we will not buy chocolates but enjoy the jazz music and artistic vibes of both Belgian and foreign artists.
Brussels Summer Festival 14.08 // 18.08
This is an absolute must visit during the summer months and has grown from a local festival to a fully-fledged party in the beating heart of the city. Enjoy both Belgian and international musicians at the Place des Palais, Mont des Arts and Place du Musée. It will be 10 hot days!
2. Party & culture
In celebration of the Flemish holiday Brussels will be dancing and partying all day long. Because of course, Brussels and Flanders are big pals! You can participate in the party by saying ‘I do’ at the Brussels Grand Place in front of hundreds of others. Make today count!

Who says the beach is far away? Brussels has everything you need for the perfect beach holiday: tons of sand, beach chairs, sun, water and… cocktails!
Foire du Midi 15.07 // 20.08
As usual the Foire du Midi (translated: South Fair) will welcome thousands of visitors from Brussels and beyond to ensure heart-racing rides on the roller coaster or the chance to win your own stuffed animal. This is the ideal place for a first date or to taste a delicious beignet.
The Flower carpet 16.08 // 19.08
Enjoy this flower paradise on the cobblestones of the Grand Place and wonder about all the flowers and their colors.

Enjoy!
