Antwerp

Its heyday may have been centuries ago, but when you fly to Antwerp you’ll see that behind its Flemish facades, a renaissance is underway.

Events

Whichever season you visit in, you’re likely to find at least a few very intriguing items on Antwerp’s events calendar.

Antwerp Christmas Market

Each December, Grote Markt transforms into a winter wonderland, crowned with a Christmas tree and decked out in sparkling lights. It’s the place to go to get in the Christmas spirit and mooch around over 100 stalls selling gifts, treats and decorations.

Winterfoor Funfair

At the same time as the Antwerp Christmas Market, the Winterfoor Funfair is an indoor carnival geared towards children, but adults will love it, too, with its vintage carnival rides, circus acts and lots of snacks.

Bierpassie Weekend

Each June, Antwerp gathers to celebrate Belgian beer at Beer Passion Weekend. Antwerp’s Groenplaats square fills with picnic tables and tents selling over 150 types of beers. Live music gets the party jumping and there’s a real sense of fun in the air.

Jazz Middelheim

In August, the Jazz Middelheim celebrates jazz music and promotes the genre to a wider audience. A full calendar of concerts draws top talent and brings an international audience of jazz lovers along with it.

Tomorrowland

It’s technically held in a nearby town called Boom (a fitting name), but Tomorrowland is one of the world’s most famous electronic music festivals. In operation since 2005, tickets to the three-day music festival typically sell out in hours.
