Last time the festival was held in 1987. The president Bratstva of Saint Medard Nuayonsky Bertrand Tribout has suggested to revive him since 2019. An invention have supported local authorities which have allocated 1800 euros (about 140 thousand rubles) for the organization of a festival. News of it has caused impassioned reaction in Salangxi and beyond her limits. Under the petition urging to cancel Fete de la Rosiere about 40 thousand people were signed. The mayor of the village Hervé Deplanque claims that he has received a set of offensive e-mails from the people considering a festival reactionary and sexist.
