Bastogne's Pat'Carnaval

  • Folklore and Tradition
Event planned for the month from February to March 2020
Dates and programme may be subject to change.

Pat'Carnaval, a folkloric celebration marking the end of winter and the arrival of spring in Bastogne, is one of the most looked forward traditions in the region.

History

It all started in 1977: the idea was to ask the local children to dress up in original costumes and join a fun cavalcade. The event becoming more successful each year, more activities were added: a fantastic bonfire, musical entertainment, a family supper, shows for children, dancing... Thus was reborn the carnival tradition, lost for a long time in Bastogne.

The Pat'Carnaval

These 3 days of festivities feature 30 carnival floats, 1,000 participants, 15,000 spectators, and 300 volunteers.

Don't miss the concerts on the Friday. This year, Mister Cover and Cré Tonnerre will add to the atmosphere.
