The Citadel Medieval Festival, which celebrated its 20th anniversary, attracted some 10,000 spectators on Saturday and Sunday in Namur, the Citadel Animation Committee (CAC) in charge of the organisation said on Monday.

The medieval fair, a biannual event, had not taken place since 2018 due to the pandemic. With 10,000 spectators, it has now regained its former affluence, according to the Belga News Agency.

No less than 500 artists and re-enactors from Belgium and all over Europe were present for the occasion. The program revolved around the reconstruction of a village from the Middle Ages.

The jousting and equestrian shows offered by the French companies Unicorn Legends and the Centaurs of Time also delighted young and old on the meadow of the Terra Nova estate, while numerous activities were offered throughout the site.

“The new mobility plan worked very well and was much needed, the esplanade of the Citadel now being more quickly saturated with parking spaces in the event of heavy traffic,” added the CAC.

“The two free P+R car parks at Saint-Nicolas and Namur Expo as well as the free shuttles offered in partnership with the TEC were a significant asset and appreciated by the public.”
