As the hop-growing centre of Flanders, every three years Poperinge organizes an original Beer and Hop Festival. Highlight is the Parade in which 65 groups, 1400 extras and 12 floats take part. The Hop Parade tells the history of the development of the hop industry, provides an overview of the various activities in the field through the four seasons and a presentation of the main hop-producing countries in the world. To tie in with the parade, Poperinge Hop Museum will be open throughout the day. You also have the chance to visit a hop company, where you can see a huge picking machine in action. There are also shows, a beer festival à la Munich in the festival marquee and a stunning firework display to round it all off.
