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 2018.

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.
