The mythical Santons Fair opens its doors every year on the third weekend of November. This year, the fair celebrates its 220th anniversary and it is on Saturday 19 November that the 26 santon makers will present their traditional know-how.
The official opening will take place on Sunday 20 November at 12 noon with folklore groups and a mass celebrated as every year in the Saint-Ferréol Church.

Santons are an integral part of Provencal traditions. They can be found in the Christmas cots in most Provencal families.
