There's always something going on in Belgium!

Often portrayed as sociable party-goers and very welcoming, Belgians like to come together and share festive and recreational experiences. Festivals, carnivals, exhibitions... in Belgium there is always something to see or do!

Since the beginning of the year, many folk groups have been preparing for the carnival season which is a true institution in some cities and particularly Binche, where it is even recognised as UNESCO Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

History lovers will delight in the historical or religious processions such as the Saint-Sang Procession in Bruges, the Ommegang in Brussels or the Napoleonic Marches of Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse.

Summer heralds the start of the music festival season, frequented by young people from all over Europe. It has to be said that with a rock festival like Werchter, five-time winner of the "World's Best Festival" award or the quirky originality of the electronic music festival, Tomorrowland, lovers of good sounds will be more than satisfied!

With the falling leaves comes the season of major museum exhibitions, trade fairs and shows. Dance, opera, theatre, the dynamic and innovative Belgian scene frequently produces internationally-renowned artists.

But alongside this hectic cultural life, daily life in Belgium also encompasses the village fête with its open-air café or marquee, its bars, skittles and card contests, its traditional dances, carnivals, craft markets, sporting games... so many opportunities for Belgians to enjoy.
