Sault Lavender Festivities

A beautiful day of colours, fragrance and flavour to celebrate the flower of Provence lavender. The fields around the provence lavendervillage of Sault (84 Vaucluse, Provence PACA)  are fragrant with the recently-harvested lavender and it is time to celebrate – 15 August 2019.

At 10am, don’t miss the 2nd lavender-cutting championship, where workers harvest with the scythe. This is reserved for professional lavender cutters. There is also a lavender-cutting contest, with a scythe, for non-professionals.

All day long there is music and dancing with Provencal folk music groups. Horse and buggy parades and rides. Market with lavender growers, farm products, a book fair and an art show. Crafts village, horse show, and a closing concert in Provencal.

At 12:30, country meal served under the oak trees.
