This weekend: June 24th, 25th & 26th

Hello! It’s going to be a bit of a brisk round-up this week as we are enjoying spending time with visitors from the UK and our summer holidays have begun. Next month also, there will be a reduced service when I am away on holiday, but I am planning to write a post which lists the most important links for the summer season.

Note that a couple of events listed here (Ramblas, Bierpassie and Barrio Latino) take place on both Saturday and Sunday.

Friday

Flying Pig

Flying Pig at Het Steen was a cool start to the weekend a couple of weeks back. The Second Edition of Flying Pig is at Napoleonkaai (near MAS museum) and kicks off at 5.

 

For after-work drinks, many of the summer bars are now open including  CargoBocaderoThe Next LevelBar PaniekSmokey Joes Garage (previously Bar Josephine) Bar Gloed on the Keyserlei (Antwerp Tower) and Zomer Fabriek.

For Beer lovers, head straight to Groenplaats for the start of Bierpassieweekend at 5pm. All beers 2 euros (pay with jetons). Bierpassie continues on Saturday and Sunday.

And for cyclists, it’s a party edition of Critical Mass -assemble with your bike on Theaterplein at 6pm; the ride will conclude with drinks and music at Moorkensplein Borgerhout.

Mechelsepleinfeesten (see below) is also already underway for Friday.

Saturday

Its the Mechelsepleinfeesten this weekend from 4pm – 11pm each day, promising food trucks, music, performances and more.

A similar event takes place on Falconplein, but with an emphasis on international food and music: Ramblas starts at 10am both Saturday and Sunday with four music stages, and food and drink from a variety of different countries. And in a similar vein, but with an emphasis on dance is Barrio Latino on the Paardenmarkt

And HAPPY 60th BIRTHDAY BATS Antwerp!  Head along to their bithday BBQ at the Little Theater on Paardenmarkt at 2pm. It’s 5 euros in for non-members, and a great chance to find out more about English speaking theatre in Antwerp. It’s a dress-up party with the theme of a  film from 1956: Around The World In Eighty Days. (image: Pixabay)

Sunday

The first Lambermontmartre was spoiled by rainy weather last month. Let’s hope it stays dry this Sunday, when it is back on Leopold de Waelplaats (that’s in front of the fine art museum – KMSKA) this Sunday from midday. As well as the chance to see and buy a variety of works by local artist, there is food and drink available, and a chance for kids to paint too.

Or there is a Vintage Market at Bocadero from midday.

If you have kids to amuse then this free performance at 3 at Ramblas on Falconplein for kids aged 3+ might be fun!
