Cycling races have been organized during Gijzel Kirmesse for decades. Fortunately, there is once again fairground and racing. Make a note in your agenda. On Friday 26 August and Saturday 27 August you will be presented with a real cycling spectacle. On Friday, August 26, the elite without contract and promises will start at 4.30 pm, on Saturday August 27, the gentlemen will start at 1.30 pm and the juniors will be on fire from 3.45 pm. Registrations at VDM, Schoolstraat 8. Funfair atmosphere, sporting entertainment, heroic duels, an exquisite course, atmosphere, beers, and cyclists passing every hour: the ingredients of the cycling races in Gijzel.
Passionate about the myth of cycling. The cycling committee organizes its races with heart and soul. With conviction and that leads to beautiful organizations. The 2022 edition will also be successful. The participants are eager to race again in ‘Gezellig Gijzenzele’. Cycling enthusiasts from all over the province will descend on rural and unspoilt Gijzenzele. The fans are once again getting ready to follow the struggles of the uncontracted elite, the gentlemen and the juniors with a big heart. Winning in Hostage, it appeals. Every participant wants the victory on his business card. The fair races in Gijzenzele are popular. Always been like this. The organizers hope for exciting matches and of course a lot of people. The cheerfulness that one finds there on the ‘kirmesse’ is simply magnificent.

An exquisite field of participants, a beautiful course, literally and figuratively guarantee top days for cycling enthusiasts.

Hostage Kirmesse, that’s also plenty of music – time Time to pop
Time and again, we continue to be amazed at how the Giezenzelenaars manage to present such an extensive fair program for four days in a row. Because no matter how you twist it or turn it, it remains a tour de force. They are smart people in Gijzenzele, the fairground friends have good intentions with their partying residents and revelers from the merged municipality and the region. The intention is that the village square is a meeting place where people create the atmosphere. No world stars at the fair, but very good singers, deejays and bands with a lot of singing talent, atmosphere and ambiance. Music and more music in Gijzel Kirmesse. In short, a concept that fits perfectly in ‘Gezellig Gijzenzele’.
One Dollar Trio, Silke Van Durme, Hammertime, Koninklijke Fanfare Orkest Volksopbeuring Massemen, John, De Gelukheid der Zingen, Jo Vally, Kevain, Das Rock and the mega – good deejays Danny Gaethofs, Dave & Danny, Jazzy Max, Boer Boerie and Geert come by at Gijzel Kirmesse and you don’t have to pay anything for that. The Kermisvrienden are proud that they can once again offer the ‘kirmesse’ for free. Especially in a time when many people have to take into account what they can and cannot do anymore. Everything has become a lot more expensive. Monday afternoon from 12 noon background music will be played in the village square, many thanks to Fabienne Delanghe. Music maestro, on all days of the ‘kirmesse’. The platform of Gijzenzeelse associations treats the partygoers to many events and a series of performances. The enthusiasm is great, the countdown has really begun. You can go crazy in Gijzel for four days, but keep it within the bounds of decency. ‘Hostage Kirmesse’ looks promising. In previous editions, the platform of Gijzenzeelse associations has established that all partygoers have enjoyed what the kirmesse has to offer. But the Kirmesse’s programming is a never-ending story. The ‘fairground friends’ are the author of the story with many chapters (45 ! items on edition 2022) that requires a lot of creativity. Behind Gijzel Kirmesse lies a long history. The organizers want to give the story a further exciting direction. It is intended to remain a popular festival. In Gijzel, the residents still party en masse. Thanks to the many sponsors (in the very luxurious program booklet it is stated that more and more sponsors find it useful to support the Kirmesse, nice isn’t it) the delicious menu that the Gijzel Kirmesse program offers can be served. Thank you very much. In any case, Hostage is ready for a lot of people. (mvdv, photos ddl)
