Camps and a parade
During the two-day festival visitors will discover around 20 Middle Aged historical camps at the foot of the castle.
The theme will focus on the whole Middle Ages period (5th and 15th century).
Several artisans (blacksmiths, iron founders, potters, bakers...) will exhibit their know-how among the camps present.
You will also have the chance to have a go at using a crossbow and attending a combat re-enactments. A colourful parade will begin at 3:30pm to the sound of minstrels, accompanied by knights, men-at-arms, Vikings...
During this time, the fortified castle and its surroundings will become the theatre to numerous shows and activities: 2 medieval camps, artisan work, medieval troops and a mix of fighters and falconers (show at 11am, 2pm, 3:30pm and 7pm).
The festival will be in full swing at the castle by the evening. Come and join in the festivities at the Medieval Festival! Taste various dishes (no reservation necessary) in a festive atmosphere, just like they did in the Middle Ages.
After your meal, come and attend an hour-long concert that will preceed the fireworks display. Your children will certainly not be forgotten at this festival, as they will be able to be dubbed knights on the Esplanade de l'Archéoscope, as well as getting the chance to visit a medieval farmyard. And, not forgetting the mini tour along the Semois river on a pony.
