The City of Brussels is launching this Friday a call for applications for the “Forain en Ville” action, which aims to install fairground trades in more than fifteen disparate locations. This initiative was decided upon at the instigation of the alderman for Economic Affairs Fabian Maingain to compensate for the cancellation of the Foire du Midi due to the rebound in Covid-19 contaminations.
“The objective of this action is to allow fairground families to practice their economic activity this summer while providing fun and recreational activities to Brussels families”, explains the alderman. He hopes that other municipalities will seize the idea in order to expand the initiative.
The sites vacated by the City may be occupied for periods of one month, the first running from August 15 to September 15. They will be allocated in chronological order of receipt by the sales department, with a maximum of one non-renewable one-month authorization per operator.
