The Laetare of Stavelot of March 27, 2022 is cancelled…

The Laetare of Stavelot of March 27, 2022 is cancelled…

But replaced by a big folk procession on Sunday May 15, 2022

The General Assembly of the Festivities Committee of the Laetare of Stavelot met this Sunday, January 23, to examine whether the conditions could be met to maintain the festivities of March 26-27 and 28. In the light of the latest developments of the health crisis and the last CODECO, it is unfortunately necessary to note that they do not yet allow us to realistically consider the organization of our festivities on the planned dates. In fact, the maintenance of our festivities, where thousands of people are normally gathered along the processions and in the HORECA establishments, is impossible due to the imposition of the CST and the mask for the events even outdoors. In view of this strict protocol and the obligations for the moment still in place for the Horeca (including the tables with 6 people seated inside), the municipal authorities present at this GA also indicated to us that, as it stands, they do not see how they could authorize this event.

Faced with this situation, and following the cancellation of our festivities in 2020 and 2021, the Festival Committee and the folk and musical societies of Stavelot have chosen not to give up and to keep the flame of all the lovers of our festivities alive, including, in particular, all the participants in the procession. To finally bring out the floats, to make discover wonderful costumes, to animate the public madly, to share the rhythms of the brass bands and harmonies… All this could not wait another year.

This is why the Assembly decided to postpone our festivities to Sunday, May 15, 2022, at a time when we can hope that the CST will no longer be required for this type of event. Although it will not be a Laetare like the one we celebrate during our three glorious years at mid-Lent, this great folkloric procession in all the streets of the city will end with the Blancs-Moussis roundel and will offer to all, societies and public, to live intensely the joys linked to our heritage.

We will inform you later on the details of this organization. However, you should know that there will be no paying entrances this year, nor a marquee, in order to allow the local HORECA to benefit as much as possible from the fallout of this event.

COMMUNIQUE – ANNULATION 518e LAETARE DE STAVELOT

[COMMUNIQUE – ANNULATION 518e LAETARE DE STAVELOT]

Comme vous le savez sans doute à présent, nos réjouissances du Laetare 2020, prévues les 21-22 et 23 mars prochain, n’auront pas lieu en raison de la crise du Coronavirus. Il s’agit d’une décision prise ce jour par nos autorités communales (voir ci-dessous l’arrêté). Même si celle-ci nous attriste profondément, nous la comprenons et la respectons dans le sens d’un principe de précaution à prendre par rapport à tous les participants à ces jours de fête. Nous sommes certains que vous comprendrez les raisons de cette situation et que vous ne nous en tiendrez pas rigueur.

Nous aurons ce dimanche 15 mars une assemblée général extraordinaire avec nos sociétés folkloriques et musicales, en présence de notre Bourgmestre. Nous analyserons ensemble l’impact de cette annulation, et nous verrons si, oui ou non, et à quelles conditions, il nous sera possible de reporter nos festivités à une date ultérieure. Nous ne manquerons pas de vous en informer.

Avec encore tous nos regrets et dans l’espoir de pouvoir encore compter malgré tout sur votre soutien à l’avenir.

Pour le Royal Comité des Fêtes du Laetare de Stavelot

Jean-Marie Marquet
Président

Yves Reinkin
Secrétaire

Communiqué de
Thierry de Bournonville,
Bourgmestre de Stavelot

Vu la progression importante de l’épidémie de coronavirus dans notre Pays ;
Vu les recommandations de la Cellule de Crise fédérale ;
Vu l’avis de nombreux experts sur la contagiosité du virus ;
Vu que la santé de nos concitoyens et des personnes désireuses de participer à l’évènement est mon souci majeur,
J’ai décidé avec regret et en parfait accord avec le Président du Comité des Fêtes d’annuler l’édition 2020 du Laetare de Stavelot.
En la prenant, je pense évidemment à toutes celles et ceux qui, depuis des mois, ont préparé ce bel évènement.
L’Assemblée générale extraordinaire du Comité des Fêtes et des groupes folkloriques et musicaux se tiendra dimanche à 10 h.00 pour évoquer la possibilité de voir l’évènement se dérouler à une date ultérieure.
Merci de votre compréhension.

Thierry de Bournonville,
Bourgmestre
