Taking place over three weekends, the BANAD Festival lets you (re)discover remarkable venues which showcase the Art Nouveau and Art Deco heritage of the Brussels-Capital Region.
The programme comprises visits of interiors normally closed to the public, several guided tours (on foot or by bike), original lectures, inclusive and family activities, and also the unmissable Art Nouveau and Art Deco Collectors' and Valuation Fair.
New in 2024 is the "half and half" (50-50) split between Art Nouveau and Art Deco/Modernism with the following categories: #Essential (unmissable venues you have to see at least once in your life), #Classic (including certain public buildings that may occasionally be accessible, but rarely presented from the point of view of architectural heritage), #New (venues never before opened in the framework of the BANAD Festival), and #Previously New (venues that were new in previous years and are now being reopened for the benefit of visitors who might have missed them earlier).
The BANAD Festival's program is made up of:
- Guided tours of remarkable Art Nouveau and Art Deco interiors, not usually open to the public. The range of options for these guided tours can be found in the "Interior Guided Tours" menu.
- Guided outdoor tours, on foot, by bicycle or by coach, which you can find in the "Guided tours" menu.
- A variety of activities, including concerts, events, activities for families, school groups, adult students of French or Dutch as a second language and reduced-mobility people. These activities are listed in sub-menus of the "Program" menu
