The annual booyah and bread lunch will be held at the Belgian Heritage Center on April 24, 11 am – 2 pm. Booyah, a hearty soup typically cooked in outdoor kettles, is a traditional dish and a mainstay at gatherings in the Belgian settlement area. This year, the event will also feature a re-launch of Door County Brewing Company’s Pastoral. This Belgian-style brew is made from locally grown barley and is dedicated to Walloon heritage in Door County. The re-launch ceremony takes place at 1 pm and will include an announcement, presentation and free samples.
All proceeds will benefit the Belgian Heritage Center in its mission to preserve and promote the area’s unique culture, history and architecture. In keeping with this mission, there will be someone available to scan family and community photographs from the Belgian area. Digital copies of these photographs will become part of the Belgian Heritage Center’s collection and may be used for the center’s displays as well as genealogical and historical research.
The Belgian Heritage Center is located at 1255 County DK, Brussels (the former St. Mary of the Snows Church).
The menu will include booyah, bread, dessert and a beverage. The cost is $9 for adults, $5 for children ages 4 to 12, and free for children ages 3 or under. They will also offer a takeout bowl for $4 (please bring your own container).
