Franchimont Medieval Fair
Franchimont Medieval Fair will take place over the third weekend in August 2015.
The ancient walls of Franchimont castle, proudly overhanging the town of Theux, will ring with the cries, murmurs and rustling of the medieval fair. This event always takes places over the third weekend in August in odd years.
Everything has been recreated so you can enjoy the atmosphere of a fair from 1514-1520, ruled by the benefactor Erard de la Marck, the Prince Bishop.
Costumes, texts, dances, music and décor are all as close to the period as possible. To add to the participatory nature for the visitors, all exchanges will be made with period money inside the boundaries of the event.
