Summer in Brussels, an unforgettable summer offer by and for the people of Brussels!

Show/hide the menu
Throughout the summer months, no less than 120 local and original StaycationBXL projects will be organised. The initiatives span the full spectrum of youth, cultural, sports and leisure activities. And thanks to the support of the Brussels Mobility, another 49 projects offer you the opportunity to enjoy public spaces to the full. This summer is all about encounters and relaxation!


The VGC has received 234 project applications. The initiatives had to meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Sporting fun: sports and exercise offer
  • Artistic fun: artistic activities by artists
  • Digital fun: creative online initiatives to entertain the people of Brussels
  • Fun and games: initiatives for children and adolescents that encourage play and enjoyment.

120 projects were chosen. They will take place in all municipalities of the Brussels Region. Many initiatives are not limited to a single municipality, but involve several of them. These are youth, cultural, sports and leisure activities that improve the life quality in the neighbourhood. Both organisations and individual Brussels artists or residents have the opportunity to develop their summer project.

Children will be able to explore the city with a horse and donkey on their way to their ideal dream location, while Muntpunt will tour the Brussels parks and public places with a summer playbox. An interactive column will appear in Gare Maritime, an urban jungle will arise in front of BRONKS and, just like last year, you will be able to kayak in the canal. And at the Flow swimming pool in Anderlecht, Zinnema will offer artistic creations, while Cinema Galeries will provide a film programme.
