Foire du Midi / Zuidfoor / Midi Fair of Brussels

The Midi Fair of Brussels, also known as Foire du Midi in French and Zuidfoor in Dutch, will take place at Boulevard du Midi/Zuidlaan, between Porte de Hal/Hallepoort and Porte d’Anderlecht/Anderlechtsepoort. Stop by and have a whale of a time at the fairground attractions, and enjoy doughnut balls, a wonderful atmosphere, a unique experience and great entertainment.

The fair is open from Saturday the 16th of July until Sunday the 21st of August, every day from 3 pm until 1 am, and during weekends and the eve of a bank holiday from 3 pm until 2 am.

Don’t miss the official opening of the Midi Fair on Saturday the 16th of July at 3 pm at Porte d’Anderlecht/Anderlechtsepoort. A municipal procession with, among others, the mayor, aldermen and the city councillors of Brussels, who will inaugurate the event with a two-hour walk along the fair grounds, stopping at a few stalls for a drink and a rest.

This year, the street animation will be provided by several street artists, for example jugglers, who will distribute a few souvenirs. In addition, two brass bands, ‘Harmonie des Corps de Police de Bruxelles’ and ‘Fanfare des Forains’, will keep up the pace during the walk with their musical rhythms! Moreover, the procession will halt at the statue of ‘Pierrot’ for a ceremony in honour of the fair stall holders who died during the First and Second World War. Pierrot will thus keep watch over the fair and its people.
