BRAFA

BRAFA is a long-running art and antiques fair held annually in Brussels, Belgium dating back to 1956.

Organised by the Belgian Antiques Fair Association, it takes place in January at the former industrial complex Tour & Taxis. Traditionally the event kicks off the new year's fairs calendar in Europe.
