Every year on Ascension (31/05), between the Cathedral quarter and the Scheldt, from the right bank to the left bank, Tournai vibrates to the sound of the accordion. In the bars and on the streets, styles vary: jazz, rock and folk, musette, gypsy and klezmer. The atmosphere is festive and allows various generations that love accordion music to meet in a friendly atmosphere.
La caravanne vanne (02/06). French-Walloon-Flemish, musical and popular event where everyone meets on their bicycles at the border of the city of Baisieux for a ride between Lille and Tournai and a giant picnic to the tunes of the accordion. No need to be a cycling champion cyclist, this is a family ride of 20 km.
