Founded in 2005 by a small group of passionate antique dealers, Brussels Art Square is one of the oldest most reliable antique and fine arts market districts in the capital city. This event takes place every year, usually in September.

One of the aims of the event is to promote the well-established Sablon Square as an important and unique location for art and antiques in Belgium. The organizers also seek to foster international links among the antiquing community and increase the number of visitors to this colorful gallery district.

Participants in the Brussels Art Square do vary from year to year, though typically around 50 dealers sign up to take part. Many of these are long-term business residents in Le Sablon, which is known as the oldest most reliable antique and fine arts market district in Brussels. During the three days of the festivities, the galleries and antique houses host an open house, and each business curates a special selection of high-quality works of art and themed exhibitions to present. There is nothing else quite like this in the annual antiquing calendar and those with a particular passion for antiques, fine art, and collectibles will definitely want to make note of the dates.

The galleries that take part in the Brussels Art Square provide unfettered access to a wide range of antiques and artwork. One store that takes part is the Galerie des Minimes, a fantastic combination of museum and flea market that can keep visitors entertained for hours. Sablon Square is also home to the Marché des Antiquaires du Sablon, a twice-weekly flea market, which is a true Aladdin’s cave for antiquing enthusiasts. This historical square is simply steeped in art and culture and the Brussels Art Square festival is the perfect opportunity to take in everything that the location has to offer.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
