"The festival of brotherhoods in the Ardennes is a rendez-vous with the land in which the most authentic and convivial can be found. It is a meeting with our heritage. And a festival that cries out to be shared with everyone."
Taste the Delicacies of the Land
Taste, savour and feast among friends in a relaxed atmosphere of sharing, this atmosphere is the only goal of this highly colourful event. Each year, during the first weekend of May: your taste-buds should be ready, set, go!
Enjoy the Conviviality
Thanks to the initiative taken by a handful of passionate volunteers looking to create a convivial event, the festival of Brotherhoods has become a unique gathering of its kind in France with about fifty French and Belgian brotherhoods.

The "Cacasse à cul nu"
Do not be fooled by its unique name, this dish is a classic from the french Ardennes gastronomic tradition. Either "à cul nu" ("bare ass" / with potatoes only) or "cullotée" ("dressed" / with meat) you can choose according to your preferences...
The "Salade au lard"
(Salad with lardon)
This is a fine mix of salad with lardon and potatoes, one of the favourite local dishes.
The "Galette à suc"
Sweet flavour of the Ardennes and... easy to cook!
