Celebrating the patron Saint
The Saint-Michel Festival dates from the Middle Ages..
Like the Foire de la Laine (wool fair), Les Feux de la Saint Jean and the Fête du Village, it is one of the cornerstones of Grimaud tradition. A highlight that hasn’t faded over the years…
The symbolism of this heritage festival is strong, with a car-boot sale and craft market taking place at Grimaud’s two squares.
Religious traditions are also maintained. A Provençal Mass still honors the town’s patron saint and is followed by a procession.
Various activities complete the festival picture (the Escandihado folklore troupe, musical walks, workshops from the past, a mini-farm and pony-rides).
