The Iris Festival

The Brussels Capital Region invites you to come celebrate its 29th anniversary on 5 & 6 May during the Iris Festival! This great festival brings together all the people of Brussels in the heart of their region and invites visitors to come and spend a weekend partying together.

From free concerts to a variety of street activities, the Iris Festival draws a big audience, earning its place among the flagship events of the cultural and festival year in Brussels. On Saturday, “The Iris Festival in the communes” will offer the chance to explore a secret and unexpected side of Brussels by touring sites and institutions usually off limits to the public. Saturday night will feature electro music with a series of concerts that will turn Place des Palais into a giant dance floor.

During the day on Sunday, the Brussels Park will be transformed by a lot of activities. The cultural, athletic, and traditional associations of Brussels will present their activities in fun and interactive ways. Artistic troupes from Belgium and abroad will perform short, poetic shows, offering a magical moment to young and old alike!

As the afternoon draws to a close, the Place des Palais stage will light up to welcome the project “MIXITY sings BREL” that will end this festival weekend on a high note!
