    Procession created in remembrance of the end of the Plague in 1092. Many activities fill the city of Tournai, 13 to 15/09/13!

    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 visits to the cathedral and its site at 11am and 4pm (in FR, NL and sign language).
