The Alpes-de-Haute-Provence celebrates its unique terroir

Come and experience the many “fêtes du terroir” in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur!

Between tastings and demonstrations, parades, children’s entertainment and craft markets, there is something for everyone and every taste!

Plus the many other festivities that await you... So find out more now!
