Events June

June heralds the return of the Sinksenfoor to Antwerp. This annual fun fair has become part of Antwerp’s cultural heritage. Summer is almost here and you can already feel the holiday vibe in the city. On sunny evenings the terraces are packed well into the morning hours. The city is also the perfect stage for open air activities, during daytime and in the evening. Save the date of the Beer Passion Weekend and check this page regularly to see what else the city has in store for you.
