From Thursday May 22nd until Sunday May 25th at midnight, the biggest European “Feria”,
apart from those held in Spain, will take place with all its flamboyant
folklore and cultural festivities and wide range of specialty dishes
Four days of “Fiesta” at BRUSSELS KART EXPO at Groot-Bijgaarden
This 21th annual Spanish and International festival, EuroFeria, will be celebrated, for the first time at BRUSSEL KART EXPO at Groot-Bijgaarden.
The 2014 EuroFeria will have these main themes:
- Horse shows.
- Live cultural and artistic performances in the large Casetas (marquees).
- Catering, sales of Iberian products, Arts and crafts and Children’s amusements.
These themes will be shared between two covered pavilions of more than 8.000 m² and an outdoor esplanade of 10.000 m² with 2.400 parking places.
Each location is a place where people can meet each other and enjoy a program of music, songs and dances as well as diverse animated activities and a variety of traditional foods in the “casetas”.
The decor and set-up of the fairground and“casetas” are in the authentic tradition of Andalusian Férias: a magical setting with“farolillos” (lanterns) in the casetas, performances by the magnificent Pure-Bred Spanish horses, popular Andalusian costumes (“flamenca” dresses for the ladies and “de corto” for the men), flamenco singing and dancing and lots of other elements offering Andalusia's sparkling spectacle of light and color.
There will be “churros with hot chocolate” to end the evening, and, of course, there will be plenty of “manzanilla” and “Fino” Sherry wines from Cádiz (Spain) without which no Andalusian féria would be complete. Much of the cuisine will be seafood dishes.
EuroFeria is a family event with activities to suit all ages. The children can play in the location created for them in the style of Andalusian fairs where they can enjoy all sorts of attractions.
- Horse shows: Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
- Each Caseta has its own program of entertainments and artistic performances. All of the schedules and reacquired informations will be available on www.euroferia.net
Finally, we report that the access to the site and shows is paying. We require an entrance of €5 per person, except for accompanied children under 12 and people in flamenco costume.
The Committee of the EuroFeria hopes you will come and enjoy this real Andalusian celebration in the heart of Europe.
