THE HASSELT JENEVER FESTIVAL
Celebrating its 25th anniversary
18 & 19 October 2014
The Hasselt Jenever Festival is one of the biggest city-wide festivals in Belgium. For two days the city is abuzz with activities, music, street entertainment, culinary feats, processions, enthronements, a waiters’ race, markets, exhibitions, statuesque jenever fountains and other madcap situations. And all this because the city wants to pay tribute to Hasselt jenever.
For the 25th time running the deer, the centuries-old symbol of Hasselt, will hop out of the city’s coat of arms, gearing up for the festival. The deer will be the host of this festive anniversary edition of the festival and will welcome everyone.
