• Folklore and Tradition
From Sunday 21 to Monday 22 April 2019.

20 different groups, 400 Gilles and confetti all around: this folkloric event in Fleurus is sure to wow you.

The cavalcade tradition dates back to Pagan times: a way to celebrate spring as the rebirth of nature.


In the 1880s, the city of Charleroi was already celebrating its 20th cavalcade its 50th carnival - the biggest hit in the region at the time! The small town of Fleurus decided to join in and organise its own event if only to revitalize local trade. The tradition still goes on...


The event takes place every year on Easter Sunday, with the procession going through the city from 3 pm. Fireworks in the evening will make the carnival even more memorable.


From Sunday 21 to Monday 22 April 2019.
