Brussels for kids and teenagers

From children bursting with energy, to ardent gamers; from little scientists, to budding artists, no child is ever bored in Brussels!

...and especially not this time of year when a whole host of irresistible events are planned!

A Smurf village, the circus and a science festival are coming to town, as are parties, cosplay, and animated films... diaries at the ready! 

  • February

  • February starts with a bang with Anima festival and its animated films for kids as young as 3 years old and its workshops for preteens aged 5 to 12 years old.
    Preteens and their parents will undoubtedly find something to their liking in the festival's vast schedule.

    Then for your teenagers there's Comic Con Brussels: it's THE Brussels event for all things pop culture. Comics, manga, fantasy, horror, cosplay and gaming: there's no excuse for staying at home!

  • March: the circus & Art Nouveau

  • During Festival Up!, Brussels becomes 100% circus with more than 125 artists in 13 venues spread all over the capital. 12 days to enjoy a crazy circus atmosphere, whatever your age!

    The BANAD Festival's Kids Weekend will delight the young and not so young with an enriching weekend of fun and fascinating Art Nouveau discoveries. The BANAD's special family activities will make sure that you enrich your cultural knowledge for the rest of your life!
