The programme of EST DEINZE 2022 features both traditional and new elements. On Friday, Holy Mass is celebrated, followed by the official opening ceremony. On Saturday, the shooting contests for European King and Prince are organised. They are followed by the Crowning Mass. On Sunday, the Great Parade will strut through the streets of Deinze. Between these activities, there are also some gala nights, contests and demonstrations of various branches of shooting. The overall idea is, however, to bring about an international fraternization between the archers and to strenghten the mutual ties and friendships, both by young and old. Getting to know the diversity of cultures is of paramount importance.
