Have you seen the program of ‘Gijzel Kirmesse’ yet? Promising to be four beautiful holidays from Friday August 26 to Monday August 29. Gijzenzele is another village where everyone comes to party. And that makes Gijzel so unique. A platform of Gijzenzeelse associations has been supporting the organization of the ‘Kirmesse’ for years. Thoroughbred Giezenzelenaars Geert De Landsheere and Johan Van Durme shed light on the program and presented the program of ‘Gijzel Kirmesse 2022’ in a good mood and with great enthusiasm. Pleasant atmosphere at the press conference, many employees signed up and were – just like the press – pampered with tasty snacks and cooled drinks. In ‘Gijzel’ they know how to do it. Also nice to see, the very friendly fair ladies in their ‘marcelleke’. Make a note, from Friday 26 August to Monday 29 August, four vibrant days are ahead. The fact that people in Gijzenzele can party for four days without getting a financial hangover is thanks to the platform of Gijzenzeelse associations. The whole village is ready for the ‘Kirmesse’. Gijzel Kirmesse is a sparkling cocktail with a lot of music, lively events and a popular atmosphere.
Organizing ‘Hage Kirmesse’ every year is a job with many challenges. But employees are always welcome, if you are interested in joining the ‘kirmesse’ dream team, mail to [email protected]. More attention will be paid to children’s entertainment this year. We don’t want to evolve into a night fair, we close at one o’clock, so we don’t want to overload our volunteers. We are following the latest hype with a darts tournament for Giezenzelenaars, thanks also to all employees, sponsors’, said Geert and Johan, who once again emphasized the importance of volunteer work.
The partygoers are treated to many events and a series of performances. With performances by One Dollar Trio (with guest appearance by Silke Van Durme), DJs Danny Gaethofs, Dave & Danny, Hammertime, DJ Jazzy Max, aperitif concert Koninklijke Fanfare Orkest Volksopbeuring Massemen, Pipo and Pipette, John, De Gelukheid der Zingen, Jo Vally , Kevain, DJ Boer Boerie, Das Rock and DJ Geert many music genres are covered.

Every year, the residents of Gijzenzel look forward to their ‘kirmesse’. The entire community is involved. The festivities are worked out by the residents themselves. A pack of Giezenzelen are involved in the organization and the elaboration. They have their hands full with it. They still do it with heart and soul. “Hostage” upstairs. On Monday 29 August, there is traditionally a place for a serene moment. There is a service in memory of the deceased parishioners. The service is led by Wies Merckx.
