Experience Wintercircus Like Never Before
(or Ever Again)

16 & 17 March 2024

Wintercircus occupies a unique place in Ghent – both in the city’s skyline and in its history. In 2024, technology start-ups will take up residence where once acrobats used to skim over the heads of elephants. But not before The Expo by ArcelorMittal takes visitors on a magic carpet ride through every floor and corner of the former circus building and old-timer graveyard. For the very first (and very last) time.

Where Vintage Meets High Tech

From Past ...

Dive into the Wintercircus' history through installations, projections, artefacts from the collections of various city museums, and soundscapes by Dijf Sanders. And 'relive' some of the (now often funny) technological innovations of the first editions of Flanders Technology, the 1980s and 1990s predecessor of FTI.
