The village festival (Grimaud)
Provence is a land of traditions and Grimaud does not escape the rule! Every year, August 14, 15 and 16, Grimaud is in a festive mood! The origin of this festival is lost in past centuries. At the beginning, religious since it is based on the celebrations of 15 August dedicated to the Virgin, it is also the feast of the village, marked, in the Middle Ages, by a great agricultural fair in the park of the Chapel of Our Lady of the Queste. Breeders and merchants came from all over the Gulf to sell and buy many goods and livestock. It was also the occasion for rejoicing, animated by music and dances, which remained anchored in the hearts of the inhabitants. That is why, today, from the land to the sea, this festival of the village is perpetuated by celebrating the tradition, whether religious with masses and procession, festive with ball, spectacle and fireworks, or Still culinary with the great aïoli of the Queste.
Organized by the association Grimaud Animations
