In September 2015 the international group of “Costumés de Venise” was invited for the first time to Bruges by Rita Peers for the annual Streetfair 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.

Stay tuned for details of the 2023 visit on February 4th & 5th, over 100 costumes expected.
