Costumed interpreters and draft horses will retrace a famous 18th march in Jodoigne - everyone is welcome to join.

A march symbolic of the farmers' rebellion in the Ancien Régime

The French Republican authorities faced a popular uprising during the winter of 1798-1799. The Chouans gathered opponents of the anticlerical policy led by the Republic. They were joined by partisans supporting Emperor Joseph II of Austria's return. The union of these two groups, who ironically had fought each other during the Brabant revolution in 1789, only last the time of a single insurrection at the end of which they were defeated.
