To mark the Festival of Europe, the European Parliament and other EU institutions will open their doors on Saturday 4 May 2013 in Brussels and Luxembourg. The festival continues on 19 May in Strasbourg. Discover the European quarter, how Members of the European Parliament work, debate and decide together…

 «Because it’s about Europe, it’s about you

In fact, 2013 has been officially named the “European Year of Citizens”. Citizens are not always aware that European citizenship gives them rights. These include the right to move and live freely in another EU member state, the right to vote and stand as a candidate in European elections, and the right to petition the European Parliament.

The European Year of Citizens therefore aims to inform everyone, and in particular young people, of the existence of these rights.

On 4 and 19 May: 4 May: a varied programme for the whole family, young and old alike!

In Brussels: the celebrations will feature, from 10.00 to 18.00, concerts, brass bands, artistic events, fun activities, tours of the official buildings, quizzes, debates with Members of the European Parliament (also to be web-streamed) and meetings with its political groups and services.

For younger visitors, the children’s village on the European Parliament esplanade will host a series of activities, craft projects and interactive games, so that children can have fun learning about Europe.

In Luxembourg: this open day will feature the music and folk traditions of various European Union countries in turn, on the Place de la Clairefontaine, from 11.30 to early evening. The official opening is at 14.00.

In Strasbourg: on 19 May you are invited to attend an official opening ceremony at 09.30. Come and debate your issues with your Members of the European Parliament and the European Ombudsman in the plenary chamber and meet the political groups and directorates-general of the European Parliament and other EU institutions. There will be festive activities and shows throughout the day.
