Knokke-Heist will once again be the cradle of cartoons in the summer of 2024. With 3 exhibitions, the Cartoon Festival takes over the coastal town again and shows the best work of Belgian and international cartoonists for the 63rd time.

- Theme exhibition 'Choose life' with guest curator Pieter De Poortere (Boerke)

- Press Cartoon Belgium: the 100 best cartoons from the Belgian press

- Gouden Hoed: the winners of the oldest and biggest cartoon contest in the world.

Besides these exhibitions - for young and old, by the way - Knokke-Heist is the place to be for signing sessions, drawing battles and other fringe activities. More than ever, the festival draws the international card: besides the international competition, the crème de la crème of cartooning was invited to draw for the festival: discover the work of Lewis Trondheim (FR), War and Peas (DE), Maaike Hartjes (NL), Anouk Ricard (FR) and Tom Gauld (UK), among others.

This year's Cartoon Festival will descend on various locations in Heist with Ravelingen as its main venue and will take place from 6 July to 1 September 2024.
