Antwerpen Proeft | Taste of Antwerp

Taste, see, live... are the themes at the heart of Antwerp Proeft, Belgium’s greatest food festival. The eleventh edition will take place during the 1 May long weekend at the Waagnatie, on the banks of the Scheldt River. With booths inside and outside as well as bars and terraces, Antwerpen Proeft is ready to go, regardless of weather conditions! You’ll feel as though you’re on holiday!


Starred and screen chefs, young talented cooks, high-standing restaurants and trendy food trucks. You won’t find as many signature dishes in the same place anywhere else, and you’ll be spoilt for choice before the dishes by many famous chefs at a fraction of the price that you would usually pay in their eatery.
Choose and participate in one or several of the many cooking demos, master-classes and free cookery workshops. New this year: free cooking classes for kids and book signing sessions by famous authors. In a nutshell, Antwerpen Proeft is THE meeting point for fussy palates.


Fifty or so very different and specialised shops and restaurants will take part in Antwerpen Proeft.
