Orange festival, Banyuls
17th February 2017
Saturday 18th – Sunday 19th February 2017
FETE DE L’ORANGE – BANYULS SUR MER
Produce market, orange trees, orange tarts, orange juice, orange jam, orange pie, orange rissoles…… if it’s orange, you’ll find it in Banyuls on Saturday 18th – Sunday 19th February , along with other entertainment throughout the day such as pony rides, bouncy castle, mechanical rodeo, trial bike demos, fairground stalls and tombola.
At 15h30 on Sunday, look out for the initiation of new members into the ‘confrérie des oranges stréssées’ – the squeezed orange brotherhood…. Freemasons beware!
Not always quite the big event expected, and sometimes rained off, so don’t be disappointed if it’s not much more than a little market selling oranges – but a visit to Banyuls is never wasted.
Live music, dance demo, bike trial…… On Sunday, at 15h, there is usually a guided walk through the orange groves.
