Plans Kids Bxl 21-22/09

Any plans without car but with the kids this weekend ?

The whole weekend

  • Bike Brussels is the urban bike fair in Brussels, with animations and demonstrations for the kids. I have the opportunity to offer you free entrance tickets : order them here, using  the promo code BBGEZIN19.
  • The flea market of the rue de Flandre is worthwhile, if it only is for its great atmosphere. Grab a bite with the kids in the area ? They will love the Chicago.
  • Knights, acrobats and minstrels will stroll around the Forest Abbey for the Medieval Fairs. Animations, activities for the kids, a fairground and a medieval market are foreseen. To join the place by bike from the city centre, follow the guide !
  • Folklorissimo will animate the Grand Place : puppets, costumes, fanfares,… for enthusiasts, thus, but it shall amuse the kids.

  • The bakfiets Fête de la Charge is an event for the cargo bikes lovers/interested traditionally hosted at the Place Poelaert.
  • The Cyclo atelier organizes a second hand bike sale from 11.00. They even make a technical inspection ! You will really have no excuse for not being equipped for Sunday.
