Free Summer Parades and processions

With 2,000 extras, stunning costumes and floats, the Gouden Boomstoet (Golden Tree Procession)  is a feast for the eyes. Here you can witness the marriage of Margaret of York to Charles the Bold in 1468. The origins of the County of Flanders and the city of Bruges are also depicted. Only once every 5 years do you have the chance to admire this parade. Don't miss it in August 2024! It will be a revamped edition connecting traditions and contemporary Bruges.
