Ettelbruck

ETTELBROOKLYN STREET FEST

9 September  | from 10am | Ettelbruck | Free

ON YOUR OWN OR WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY

The first edition of the Ettelbrooklyn Street Fest will take place in the less well-known areas of the town of Ettelbruck:  place Guillaume, rue Guillaume and place de la Libération. The organiser wanted to move away from the districts that usually draw tourists and reveal the "real" Ettelbruck, hidden behind the town's façades. From 10am, a book fair will be held in rue Guillaume. Then at noon, visitors can stop for a bite to eat at the food trucks in place de la Libération. Things really get going at 2pm, when clowns, jugglers, acrobats and a marching band will take to the pedestrian area to guide visitors towards the main events.
