Of course you could follow Belgium’s national day celebrations on the TV from the comfort of your armchair. But there’s no way it can compare to being part of the festivities in the capital! So, come to Brussels and join the party!
You could also start early on 20 July, with a concert by the National Orchestra of Belgium in BOZAR, or something more popular: the National ball in the Marolles district. On the eve of the national holiday, place du Jeu de Balle – the beating heart of this popular Brussels neighbourhood – hosts no frills and no fuss festivities full of enthusiasm, humour and music that go on into the small hours of the morning.
