After spending the night on the dance floor, what's more Belgian than chips, mussels and a good beer? In Brussels in July 2016!

The idea of organising a street dance popped up in 2003 during the Royal Celebrations, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of King Albert II's reign.

The festival was a success from the start, and since then a dance has been organised every summer on the evening prior to the National Day at the heart of the Marolles area (from 7:30pm to 1am).

The next morning, on the Jeu de Balles square in the Marolles, generous helpings of mussels with crispy chips will be served in a chilled atmosphere while the national ball orchestra plays. Brusselians and tourists gather for a friendly meal!

Brussels Zwanze (typical Belgian humour) and great food galore!
