Belgian Club of Northern California


Welcome to BCNC

The Belgian Club of Northern California (BCNC) is a non-profit organization for Belgians living in or around the San Francisco Bay Area. BCNC is a place to enjoy a time between Belgians and friends remembering Belgium, the company of other Belgians, the Belgian food and traditions, and exchanging stories of our home country. Some BCNC members have been in Northern California for many years and others just arrived for college or  their career. All are welcome! And friends are also welcome to participate to any of our events.
