Tournai in full party mode

Tournai in full party mode

Join in a weekend completely dedicated to partying! Festivities, parades, concerts and loads of fun activities in Tournai, in June 2015! 

It is not a simple and certainly not a spared schedule. In fact, it's quite the opposite! It will be way more upbeat and festive. You will experience days full of colour where different groups and activities follow on from each other all for your enjoyment! 

Tradition is not forgotten during the festivities and is exhibited by the le Concile des Chevaliers de la Tour (The Council of the Knights of the Tower, The Days of the Four Processions and the Corso flower parade, to which will be joined by several brass bands, who will play throughout the parade and will host the final stage at the Grand'Place!

And then...shhhhhh!     

All the event contributors want to keep quiet about a grand finale plan, the most anticipated part the whole 3 days. 

Not forgetting the Tournai Kids Festival: Tournai's wonderful city park will be transformed to immerse little ones and big ones into a "WESTERN" atmosphere. Many free activities will be organised throughout the day, and Tristan Moreau, UNICEF sponsor of the Tournai Kids Festival will exhibit his never before seen closing show of the day.
