Folklore Parades of the Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse region Museum

Description

Opened in 1986, the museum’s aim is to showcase one of the most important pieces of folk tradition in Wallonia. The traditional parades, which date back to the Middle Ages, have never ceased to adapt to the important and historical periods which have marked the Entre-Sambre-et-Meuse region. Since 1801, the year when an agreement between the Vatican and Napoleon was signed, the armed companies have donned their military uniforms for religious processions and parades in veneration of the patron saint of the villages.
