Calendar of carnivals in Belgium in 2016


Get plenty of ideas for carnival 2016 in Belgium. Browse our calendar of carnivals, Laetares and cavalcades in Wallonie and Brussels.


Carnival festivities in Belgium have forever been anchored in folklore and tradition. The Carnival of Binche and its Gilles have no reason to envy the famous carnivals of Rio, Nice or Venice. The "Cwarmê" of Malmédy and its Haguète take you on a journey of discovery of Wallonia's carnivals. The Blancs Moussis carnival in Stavelot is an unmissable event for the local population.


The carnival parades are best experienced with friends or family throughout Wallonia, with floats, confetti cannons and all sorts of colourfully costumed, masked and face-painted characters. Traditionally, the carnival period starts with the carême, on Shrove Tuesday. Carnival offers everybody the possibility to let their hair down and celebrate while waiting for the end of this festive period.
