The Midi Fair, one of the oldest Brussels summer events, is traditionally held in July and August.
This traditional fair extends along the small ring road, on the Boulevard du Midi, near the Midi train station [plan].
Fairs in Brussels
The Midi Fair has a long history. In 1880 the city council decided that the 3 fairs which took place simultaneously at the Grand-Place, the Place des Martyrs and the place Marché aux grains had to be combined. One big fair was born, taking place in the first weekend before the national holiday of 21 July. The tradition still exists today.
Old and new attractions
The Midi Fair now counts more than 130 diverse attractions. The attractions are intended for young and old. There are the old, traditional and the newest, more 'sensational' attractions. Of course, Belgian and Brussels specialities can also be tasted at the Midi Fair.
Online discount coupons available on the site Fête-foraine.be.
