The Corn Riots Festival, La Folle d’Avoût, first took place from Friday 24 September to Monday 27 September 2021 to mark the 250th anniversary of the major legislative reform that transformed society in Jersey, as a result of the Corn Riots.
It was next held in 2022 and was expanded to include more educational and culinary events during the build-up.
It is expected to be held again in 2023, and further details will be announced once finalised.
Throughout September 2022, schools took part in sessions designed to increase pupils' understanding of Jersey’s unique heritage and our distinct and vibrant contemporary culture.
