From Friday 18 to Sunday 20 August 2017, the Bollekesfeest (Bollekes Festival) makes Antwerp’s city centre light up once more. What began 11 years ago as a culinary festival has become a grand, contemporary and informal folk festival that puts all of Antwerp's assets – past and present - in the spotlight.

Antwerp's brands and traditions, local produce and music coated in a lovely summer’s atmosphere: that is what the Bollekes Festival is all about. Alongside performances, tours and walks, it offers good food and drinks. The place to be is the Market Square, Groenplaats and Steenplein. And what's more: this year, the Bollekes Festival is once again free of charge.

So pencil it in your diary and come and enjoy the best the city has to offer for three days in August!
