The Expo that happened in 1958 had a bold style and atmosphere. That is why many events will invite us back to the 50s. The rock n roll festival, vintage design fair, and the classic car show will set the atmosphere of the time. The Smurfs, on the other hand, will invite us to take a plunge into the elf world. They too are celebrating their 60th anniversary, so they are preparing something special.

In addition to numerous events, various creators chipped in dedicating their work to the jubilee. Patrick Webber and Baudouin Deville are on that list of contributors. They are releasing a comic book entitled “Sourire 58” (“Smile 58”) about Expo 58. Flobecq brewery came up with a special beer produced for the occasion “Flow 58”. To the delight of collectors MeisterSinger is releasing 60 anniversary watches.
