Brussels Belguim Events
The Brussels Summer Festival brings together popular Belgian and international artists to give you a taste of the best of their work. There are activities to mark the annual winter miracles that liven up the heart of Brussels over the Christmas period.
The four most important events, however, are the Christmas parade on Boulevard Anspach, which begins and ends with a parade through the streets of the city centre. There is also Rose Monday, when the action lasts from the weekend of Shrove Monday to Tuesday and reaches its climax on Monday, with costumed groups and floats parading through the city centre, and there is a parade to watch (tickets are required to get to the main square).
Tickets can cost up to 50 euros and are hard to get, but you can buy a three-day ticket at the tourist office. There are also a number of free jazz concerts, and the venues are the Royal Albert Hall, Stade de France, St. Paul's Cathedral and many others. The entrance fees vary depending on the venue and tickets cost between 5 and 10 euros per day.
This show offers an ideal platform for foreign galleries and artists to present their works to Belgian collectors and gives young Belgian talents the chance to be known on the international market. Belgian talents, the festival also invites performing arts companies from abroad to find a platform for expression before an attentive and generous audience.
This five-day festival is sure to provide the best atmosphere, so get your tickets as soon as possible and reserve your seats months in advance. To secure a seat on the Grand Place for the final, you must reserve at least two weeks before the start of the festival. If you want to see the grand finale on the first day of the festival on the Grand Place, where the action is most intense, you must reserve a seat a month in advance.
From June to September it is filled with festivals and events and is the perfect destination for cultural travellers. If you want to sleep in a tent during the music festival, Park Inn Hotels is a great way to get involved in one of the city's events.
One of the most famous is in February, when a parade with 1500 extravagantly dressed dancers called Gilles takes place. There are many other events in the city, such as the Binche Carnaval, which is built when locals dress up in period clothing. The atmosphere gets going when the locals, dressed in traditional costumes, costumes and traditional costumes from the past, take part in the last stage of the procession.
In Sonian Forest, a collection of hinkelstones - like stones - commemorates the eleven foresters who also died in the war. The church depicts the events of the First World War in stained glass windows and five unknown soldiers are buried. Three locomotives named Arrow, Elephant and Stephenson accommodate 900 guests, including the King and Leopold, and are based at the scene of one of Belgium's most famous battles, the Battle of Brabant.
While the event is much more cheerful with many townspeople in chic period attire, it can be somber for a few hundred participants in brown cowls and capuchins with their heavy crosses pulled behind them. The celebrations begin in the ornate windows of the Town Hall, where the guests of honour, including many descendants of those present in 1549, sit on top of a wall that gives the centre of Brussels the slightly pentagonal shape it has today. This is the wall that gives it the shape it has today - a cross between square and circle.
This is a replica of the spectacle that took place in 1549 in honour of Emperor Charles V and the Royal Family during his visit to the city.
It takes place in the Grand Place, the heart of Brussels, and includes a series of events that make you feel as if you have fallen back in time. Hip-jazz cats can listen to non-stop grooves from all over the city for three days, which change every year (see website). The Brussels Jazz Marathon is becoming increasingly popular. Over 400 musicians perform in Brussels over three days, spread over four days. The quality of the music is very high, as there is a wide range of styles and styles, from classical to modern jazz, but most of these bands from the seventies are perhaps lesser known names. In the cities, performances are held in numerous places, and there are many different kinds of music, such as classical, rock, folk, jazz and blues.
The festival, which dates back to the 13th century, has all sorts of parades and parties, but the star is the huge figure of a Goliath who clumsily moves around the city to represent the historical and folkloristic characters it represents. One of the traditions is the "Boiler Party Night," which takes place the evening before the festival begins, where the revellers in the main hall are prepared for the next day with a warm electro session.
