This festival is one of the liveliest and most vibrant in the Liège region. This major event will next take place in the ardent city in August 2018 - not to be missed.

The program

The 2018 will feature quite a few activities: a flea markets, puppet shows, traditional dances, an outdoor mass with the sermon said in Walloon, "Campes" firing (large crackers arranged in rosaries), a procession (with the giants from the Liège Province) but also traditional games (greasy pole...), various concerts and more.

A wonderful way to discover many of the local customs: culinary ones (such as pèkèt and boukètes) as well as traditions and popular games. The end of the festivities on 16 August is highlighted by the "Burial of the Mati l'Ohé": a ludicrous funeral escorted by fanfares and tearful widows...

The full listing is available on the official website.

Come and party in Outremeuse on August 15th!
