The event (the opening, the walk and the concert) is free and open to everyone.
Food trucks will be present to make the most of this family day and to provide something to eat before or after the walk and the concert.

About Annie Cordy
Baroness Leonia Juliana Cooreman was born in Laeken on 16 June 1928.
Under the name Annie Cordy, she started an exemplary career with strength and talent, at a time when women did not yet have the right to vote and could not open a bank account either, which brought her to the biggest stage in the world for 70 years. She represented her native country, Belgium, brilliantly and her death in 2020 caused great emotion in the country.
So it is only natural that the public voted for her in a referendum organised by the Brussels Capital Region as part of the feminisation of public space, and more specifically to rename the country's longest tunnel.
The walls of the tunnel are decorated with a fresco of thirty portraits of women. A work of art by Charlotte Beaudry. When you walk through the tunnel to the city, you see the faces of these women. And when you leave the city through the tunnel, you will see their backs.
The artwork wants to show that Brussels is a multicultural city where women should have their place without fear.
Location: Elisabeth Park
By taking part in the free walk in the new Annie Cordy tunnel you are also supporting charity. The City of Brussels will donate 10 euros to Pink Ribbon for every person who attends.
Currently, there are no less than 100,000 patients fighting breast cancer in our country. With the money collected by this unique walk, Pink Ribbon will be financing concrete projects to fight breast cancer.
Would you like to go the extra mile to support this fight? Then drum up all your friends, family, colleagues and neighbours. Walk for free through the Annie Cordy tunnel and enjoy various fun performances afterwards. The ideal Sunday activity!
Are you attend the event with more than 10 persons? Then send us an email. We will gladly process your registration: firstname.lastname@example.org
