Imagine a custom-built BMX park, acrobatic freestyle, breakdancing, food trucks and street art! This concentration of action sports and stylish initiatives will rock Josaphat Park on the last weekend of June. Urban Sessions is also an opportunity to learn about high-flying sports, whatever your age, and to meet some of the leading figures in these disciplines, such as Kevin Van Ekert, world wheelchair motocross vice-champion.

PERFORMING ARTS: Visueel Festival Visuel

Visueel Festival Visuel knot on hands

Two cultural centres, CG de Kroon and Archipel 19, join forces for a free festival that transcends language barriers. Here there are no words, but lots of antics, acrobatics (on water and in the air), amazing performances including even clownish bushes ready for all kinds of madness and a show that makes the grass talk! Combining circus arts, dances of balance and funny and poetic performances, Visueel Festival Visuel appeals to all our senses, amazing us in the process.

The BRAFA (Brussels Art Fair) is eclectic by definition. It spans a broad artistic spectrum, from Antiquity to the twenty-first century, with every discipline represented. Art-nouveau jewellery, eighteenth-century cabinets, precious earthenware, African masks, design objects, and contemporary artworks…every year, its 135 or so exhibitors from 14 countries presents a vast variety. It is that unusual mix that makes Belgium oldest art and antique fair so special. Gibert et Georges were the guests of honour at the 2019 BRAFA. The Belgian artist Arne Quinze, known for his impressive colourful sculptures, will spice things up in 2022!
