Here are some top events and attractions happening in the charming coastal town of Knokke in August and September.

Here is Together's selection of some of the top events and attractions in August and September.

KOOZA
KOOZA signals a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil, combining two circus traditions - acrobatic performance and the art of clowning. It tells the story of The Innocent, a melancholy loner in search of his place in the world, exploring themes of fear, identity, recognition and power. The Innocent's journey brings him into contact with a panoply of comic characters such as the King, the Trickster, the Pickpocket, and the Obnoxious Tourist and his Bad Dog. The show, packed with surprises, thrills, chills, is taking place in a big tent next to the train station. 19 July to 18 August. Tickets: from €34.

Part of Art Nocturne Knocke, this sculpture walk wends its way through the streets. Organized in cooperation with Galerie Balastra, this year (its 20th anniversary) Sculpture Link will exhibit, among others, the works of sculptors Johan Baudart, Giovanni Gelmi and Jean François Jans.

These monumental sculptures will lead visitors along the Zeedijk (boardwalk) from Het Zoute and Duinbergen, passing along Hotel La Réserve and skirting the Zegemeer Lake towards the Scharpoord Cultural Centre. From 18 June to 18 August.

At the height of the summer, the ever-popular Folklore market is held in the town centre every Thursday afternoon. Extending several blocks, the market features old crafts, demonstrations, and live entertainment, including local folk dancing - and you can even have your bicycle engraved! Until 22 August.
