The Fête de Toine Culot - a tribute to Walloon writer Arthur Masson in Treignes

  • Discover school as it was in the 1930s at the Espace Arthur Masson
  • Folklore and Tradition
From Saturday 28 to Sunday 29 September 2019.

The festive weekend, organised by L'Espace Arthur Masson, pays tribute to this Belgian writer, famous for its many books taking Wallonia's countryside and villages as background. His most famous character is Toine Culot, mayor of the fictional village of Trignolles, celebrated during this festival. The event takes place in Treignes, in September 2019.

The Fête de Toine Culot is such a success it will be celebrating this year its 31st edition. It's also a fantastic opportunity to discover L'Espace Arthur Masson, and the Maison du Viroin, which recreates a 1930s classroom.

  • Traditional regional dishes at the Chez Toine cafeteria
  • Processions in period costumes
  • Theatre play in Walloon
  • Games of yesteryear
  • Street entertainment...
