The Jenever Festival
Every year on the 3rd weekend of October, Hasselt hosts the fun and fabulous Jenever Festival.
This is your chance to experience all the tastes and colours of this national drink in Hasselt, the Jenever capital of Belgium.
There’s music, dance, street theater, and, of course, plenty of good food.
Even the city fountain gets in on the act with water changing to jenever.
Live cooking demonstrations will show you creative ways to use jenever, and there will be plenty of options to try out some jenever-based cocktails.
It’s one of the most exuberant city parties in all of Belgium.
