There is not an awful lot that Belgium and Australia have in common, but they both sure know their mussels! Come and get a taste of the ultimate Belgo-Aussie cuisine during our Mussel Festival at the Belgian Beer Café.
Very nice, relaxed get together at the Hank Marvin Markets. We started sunny, had a typical change to Belgian weather and ended in beautiful spring weather again. Great prep for the Grand Final in the arvo. Some kids had to wash off their Magpies face paints with tears. Ket Baker sold out her pastries and thanks for the mate rates for the Belgians!!
Spring is in the air! We're organising a brunch in the park, Saturday 29th of September between 9:30am and 12:30pm at the Hank Marvin Markets in Alma Park, St Kilda East (150 Dandenong Road),
The Hank Marvin Market is small and cosy with food trucks and delicious street food. We picked this place because our own Ket Baker will be there with her delicious 100% sourdough croissants and pastries which take 5 days to make. You really have to try them!
We all need a good breakfast, brunch or lunch for the Grand Final later that day (2:30pm start). Hope to see you there, we'll make ourselves visible with Belgian colours.
Hi there fellow Belgians in Melbourne. We're introducing our monthly Manneken Pils get-togethers where we will catch up every first Thursday of the month at different venues in/around the city for some afterwork drinks.
This will be a great opportunity to connect and network with other Belgians in Melbourne and bring the Belgian community in Melbourne and surroundings closer together.
It's not a Belgian only event, everybody is welcome, please feel free to bring your colleagues and friends as well.
September Manneken Pils: Thursday 6th of September from 6pm onwards @ Arbory Bar (Flinders Walk, Melbourne) - Right in between Flinders St train station and the Yarra River. No Belgian themed venue this time, but easily accessible by train so nobody has to count the number of pints one can drink.
We'll make ourselves visible with a Belgian flag. Hope to see you there.
The world cup 2018 went into the books with a new record. Never did the Belgians come so close to the title, and never did so many Red Devils' enthusiasts gather together in Melbourne. Legendary goals were celebrated while the Belgian playlist was put on repeat. As a cherry on the pie this period of patriotic gatherings was closed off with the Belgian National Day.
A big thank you to everyone who joined the events: it was LEGEND!
After a short break, the BCV will pick up where it has left. As of September there are a number of great events in the pipeline; monthly afterwork drinks, the yearly mussel event, Saint Nicholas and a pick-nick.
Hello all Aussie Belgians out there. With a fantastic World Cup campaign still fresh in our memories, our Belgian national proud is stronger than ever. It's time to celebrate again with a casual get together for the Belgian National Day this Saturday the 21st of July.
We will start from 12pm onwards at The Castle Hotel (56 Courtney St - North Melbourne), th true Belgian hub in Melbourne and the ideal location for our National Day Celebrations.
There will be plenty of great Belgian beers and meals packaged in great deals. Please feel free to bring along your non-Belgian friends, colleagues, family and neighbours. It will be a great day to honour our cultural background and show Melbourne the Burgundian nature of the bravest nation of all.
See you on Saturday!
