If you haven’t attended one of the previous 3 eat! Brussels festivals … and you live in the city, then you have really been missing out!
I attended in 2012 and in 2014 (sadly missing out in 2013 because I was travelling) and all I can say is ” GO GO GO!!!” to the 2014 edition being held from 10-13th September 2015. Entry is free, but be sure to purchase tickets(which will be exchanged for tokens) so that you can eat & drink to your hearts content (details of these are at the end of this post).
Previously hosted in the Bois de la Cambre, this year however, the venue has moved to Parc de Bruxelles (right in front of the Royal Palace) – but we are sure that the festivities will remain as bountiful as before!
There are options to attend workshops on wine hosted by the Bordeaux School of Wine (something that we attended last year and can recommend) – as well as the option to wander through each of the wine pavilion’s enjoying the opportunity of tasting different wines…
And food… don’t forget about the food! Get to taste some awesome tasting sized dishes from well-known restaurants in the city – or meander across to the International partners stands where you could enjoy tasty delicacies form Quebec, Beijing, Sichaun Province, Rabat, Budapest, Sofia to name a few!
PLUS a new addition to previous years programmes includes cooking workshops with Mmmmh! (a well known cooking school)… where there are even workshops aimed at families with children.
One thing you can be sure of – you wont leave hungry, thirsty or bored!
You can either purchase your tickets/vouchers online beforehand (with a discount!) – or at the ticket counters on the day – these are then exchanged for tokens (each token represents 1euro) and providers will only accept tokens (no cash) at their stands.
You can find everything that you need to know on their website: eat! Brussels drink! Bordeaux
