There is great enthusiasm in Scheldewindeke. Fair Windeke is in sight. After two miserable corona years, there is finally another full Fair Windeke. The richly filled poster immediately shows that everyone is welcome in Scheldewindeke. Promising to be six busy holidays from Friday 1 to Wednesday 6 July 2022.

Each item has its target audience. And a nice bonus, all performances on the Marktplein are free. The committee is proud that they can keep the performances on the Marktplein free of charge, especially at a time when many people have to take into account what they can and cannot do this summer. With the windmills, the market square becomes a paradise for children. On Mondays, the soul mass for deceased parishioners has been honored for decades.
It is the ambition of the Windeekse Groenbuiken that the fair is and remains one big popular festival. Until 15 years ago (2007) it was eerily quiet on the Market Square of Scheldewindeke. Filip Michiels, Ruben De Gusseme and Pieter-Jan Seurinck decided to set up a fair committee between pot and pint. They put their heads together and invited the Windeke associations and interested parties to work on the Windeke fair. Fifteen years later, the Windeekse Groenbuiken with chairman Filip Michiels, Rita De Loore, Annelies Parent, Ruben De Gusseme, Anneleen De Vlaminck, Xander De Corte, Hilde Van Den Bulcke, Christina Bergmans and Anneleen Colpaert still make a lot of work for Kermis Windeke. The spiritual father of Windeke Kermis Filip Michiels (he was responsible for the rebirth in 2007) and the simply wonderful fair committee want to drag you into a series of party activities at the 2022 edition. The Groenbuiken is unpacking with a strong program. From Friday 1 July to Wednesday 6 July, Kermis Windeke will explode in full force. Your patience will be rewarded. Kermis Windeke 2022 looks promising. Six days of celebration to start the summer. Under the spell of the fair. It will be a strong edition. Thousands of partygoers are expected on the ‘six days’. The parties also present themselves as a family event. The fair appeals to a very diverse audience within and outside the merged municipality. The Windeekse Groenbuiken has provided a program to suit everyone’s taste. Time to pop. Follow Margriet Hermans’ good advice: ‘Let’s stick around’. (mvdv, photos ddl).
