Event description and programme
The Festival is held every year in different locations of Flanders (or the Flemish region) of Belgium.
The reenactors build their encampments in the tradition of the presented period; thus, the visitor meets Celts, Romans, Vikings, medieval folk and knights, nobles and common citizens of the Renaissance period, Scottish Highlanders, 18th century bourgeoisie, Woodland Indians, Napoleonic troops, American Civil War soldiers, cowboys, participants of the I and II World War and Vietnam War.
Around 1000 re-enactors or participants in historical costumes take part at the event, as well as about 400 tents in the historical camps to give an as realistic image as possible of the evolution of the world history with all sorts of demonstrations in the related historical framework. The life and daily activities are presented, as well as pottery, wood-work, blacksmithing and other crafts of the different epochs. The event offers various displays to the public, like historical battles, tournaments, manoeuvres and drill exercises, duels, and entertainment shows.
