CANCELLED Fête du Racou – Argelès

23rd July 2021

Fête du Racou

The decision has been made by local authorities to cancel the 2021 Fête du Racou because of the current sanitary situation.

This annual festival on the Racou beach, including swimming race for all, is a great family day out.

Le Racou is a firm favourite with both locals and visitors.

While many neighbouring coastal towns have been developed to host the growing number of tourists, le Racou still retains its traditional seaside resort feel.

Stroll down the “main street” and find saucy postcards, buckets and spades, shabby chic bars and cafés, a tiny boulangerie full of local treats…

You can also find traditional fish and chips at le Racou Beach Snack – they come highly recommended by P-O Life readers!

Then cut through the renovated exile huts to the soft sandy beach and the sparkling blue Med.

Fête du Racou

Each year, the town celebrates the summer season with its annual fête. It’s a relaxed, family affair with entertainment and games, music and dancing, a swimwear fashion show and the main event: the swimming race!

So join the party from 2pm on Friday 23rd July!
