Agenda for the weekend of May 14 and 15

From 12 to 15 May, Brussels, Tour & Taxis

For four days, more than fifty chefs and restaurants offer their vision of street food at Tour & Taxis. The first edition of Streat Fest aims to combine workshops, street art, music and, of course, gastronomy.

We find especially famous addresses like Hors-Champs by Stefan Jacobs, El Cuchillo, Gramm by Kenzo Nakata. But also street food specialists: Monella de Ugo and Franscesco, Mo Mo, Smash, Ganesh, Bia Mara. Top chef fans can test the recipes of Logan, the Belgian candidate for the 2022 edition.

At the same time, the festival invites participants to attend classic cooking classes, seminars to teach cheese / beer or tea couples, eco-responsible cooking, oenology and mixology courses, or tips on how to make a photographed dish for Instagram. Streat Fest is also a market for producers and artisans who come to present their knowledge made in Belgium.

All these culinary discoveries are accompanied by a musical and festive program: street artists, circus artists, graphic artists, DJs, rockers, while a children’s corner welcomes the little ones.
