Brussels Comic Strip Festival 2024
Belgium, and Brussels in particular, have been fertile ground for comic strips from the very beginning, so it’s entirely fitting that they dedicate a full weekend to the rich cultural heritage that is the “Ninth Art.”
- The Comic Strip Festival attracts thousands of visitors, so book your stay as early as possible as hotels in the centre can be difficult to find. Stay in the “Fabulous” rated Hotel Indigo Brussels, featuring stylish and spacious rooms, great location and high-rated breakfast options.
- Since it began in 2010, the Brussels Comic Strip Festival has grown by leaps and bounds and acquired a reputation as a premier festival in the Ninth Art world. More than 100,000 people are now expected to attend each year as well as 250 renowned authors.
- Each year the Brussels Comic Strip Festival is the main event for all comic strip fans. Whether young or old, amateur or expert, tourist or Brussels local, merchant or buyer, there is something for everyone in the wide variety of activities on offer.
