Grand Historical Procession of Our Lady of the Infirm

Grand Historical Procession of Our Lady of the Infirm
© ASBL Procession de Tournai

Be part of the procession created in remembrance of the end of the Plague in 1092. Many activities fill the city of Tournai on 14/09/14!

The pomp of the costumes of the participating groups and the richness of the shrines carried through the streets with great ceremony make this a truly remarkable festival.

This procession carries the main treasures of the Cathedral through the town, escorted by fraternities and groups in ancient costumes in the company of musicians and choirs.

A wonderfully sumptuous show!

The procession takes place on the second Sunday in September.

It sets off from the Cathedral at around 3pm and returns to the cathedral at around 4:45pm.

There are guided tours of the cathedral and its site at 11am and 4pm (in FR, NL and sign language).
