Anyone who has ever been to Bruisend Balegem will definitely return for the tenth edition on Sunday 14 August 2022. Sparkling Balegem will once again be a total spectacle. The top effervescent Christ Meuleman and the bruisers have clearly chosen not to compromise on quantity and quality. Bruisend Balegem stands for a cocktail of music, animation, expo, folklore, art, culture, market, street theatre, tractor show, culinary food & drinks,… and literally and figuratively lots of fireworks.
Bruisend Balegem is unique because it is a cultural folk festival that appeals to a very wide audience. The kids have also been thought of. On the 2022 edition, bustling Balegem will provide a mixture of top quality and broad entertainment to suit everyone’s taste. Including many bands, stars, toppers from Flemish soil. The 2022 menu looks very appetizing. And for those in doubt, Bruisend Balegem also thinks of your wallet, on Sunday 14 August the event is and will remain free. Such an extensive quality program naturally has a cost (many zeros in the amount). But the unique thing about Bruisend Balegem is that, thanks to the sponsors and the proceeds of food festivals, Bruisend Balegem can be kept FREE for the thousands of visitors. In the meantime, the BB team has succeeded in turning Bruisend Balegem into a top touristic and cultural event. Sparkling Balegem will be mega good on the tenth edition.
