In the tradition of the real Venice Carnival, there will be 35 Costumés in Bruges for a one day parade on January 18, 2020.(10 am & 2 pm) on January 18, 2020.
Participants design and compose their costumes with months of devotion with eye for detail and ornaments.
In September 2015 the international group of “Costumés de Venise” was invited for the first time to Bruges by Rita Peers for the annual Street Fair in Langestraat/Hoogstraat.
The success and many positive reactions on this artistic event laid from 2016 to the organization of a yearly Pré Venice Carnival in Bruges by the vzw BrugseHotels (Discover Bruges) with Paul Asselman as driving force.
The group Costumés, now under the name of “Regards Vénitiens” would attract thousands of visitors and tourists in the last 4 years with parades and nocturnes.
