You can also learn more about our history at the many festivals, and literary, musical and artistic gatherings. It’s a unique opportunity to enjoy a rich mix of culture and heritage, both past and present.
Every Provençal village also has its own traditional festivals, and Grimaud is no exception. Time seems to have had little effect or, rather, these festivals have stayed true to their roots, introducing just a few improvements, sufficient to attract new generations of visitors.
In spring, it’s time for the wool fair and a chance for fellow villagers to meet up. In summer, the Saint-Jean fireworks traditionally mark the return of the fine weather and harvest season. The 16th of August is the day of the village festival, when a long and beautiful procession makes its way up to grounds of Notre-Dame-de-la-Queste chapel. For the festival of Saint-Michel, the entire village gathers together to honor their patron saint.
