Fête de la Saint-Pierre

  • The Feast of Saint Peter is a tradition dear to our maximum hearts.

    Historically a fishing port, Sainte-Maxime still lives to the rhythm of the great blue that draws its coastline for miles. Saint Peter the Patron Saint of Fishermen is honored in a traditional way on June 29 to ask him protection and profusion of fish and Mediterranean dishes.

    For the first time, take part in a guinguette evening where joy and colors mingle on the walk to the rhythm of our musicians. Have fun, dance, sing and feast with our giant sardinade organized for the occasion!

    This feast of Saint John is a promise of a return to traditions with the strong value: SHARING!

    Program:
    6 pm - Holy Mass in the Church
    7pm - Procession in the old centre from the Church to the Harbour Master’s Pier
    19h45 - Procession at sea and blessing of the boats
