Lemon Festival in France

Call 01242 547 705 to speak to a specialist Enquire


If life gives you lemons - celebrate them. This motto perfectly describes the annual Lemon Festival, better known as the 'Fête du Citron', which is held every February/March in a coastal village of the Côte d'Azur.

Those who simply think this festival is about slicing up a few locally grown produce are sorely mistaken - visitors must be prepared to join in the festivities with around a quarter of a million other festival-goers. Throughout the event around 145 tonnes of citrus fruit are used or consumed, so it's a healthy affair.

There's something for all the family, children will enjoy the "Promenade du Soleil", a carnival of fruit and colour as bands and people in costumes parade through the street with (you've guessed it) plenty of citrus fruit!

The fun doesn't stop when the sun goes down, those wanting to party into the night can enjoy fireworks at the moonlit parade after visiting the gardens of light at Jardins Biovès. After a day of partying, take home the festival fruit, which is excellent for making jams, perfect with pancakes or simply put your feet up with that G&T and a dash of lemon!

Dates: Festival dates vary annually but this year's festival takes place from 13th February - 2nd March.
