• Folklore and Tradition

Join a festive weekend celebrating a folkloric tradition in Polleur and learn all about the legend of the Staneux Beast...

A fascinating program

All valid men in the village go hunting for "the Beast" on the Sunday morning while women will peacefully wait for their return, sipping on a drink.

The afternoon brings much cheerfulness with Walloon theatre plays, puppet shows, games of yesteryear... Colourful characters will welcome you to the village's bars where you can try the local spirits, sure to strengthen your spirits, should you wish to go hunting too.

The highlight of the day is the judgment of the Coucou, a people's tribunal applying sentences straight away...
