81 Lemon Festival - 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
Beneath the zest of oranges and lemons lies one of the world’s greatest festivals
La Fête du Citron® (Lemon Festival), an unique event in the world, attracts more than 230,000 visitors every year - a number which is constantly rising.
Just imagine… Designs up to 10 metres tall, incredible decorations, floats requiring over 140 tonnes of oranges and lemons. For three weeks, the Jardins Biovès [Biovès Gardens] and the streets are given over to these citrus giants.
With processions of floats, gardens of lights and the exhibition of giant designs, come and discover this fantasy world, and move to the rhythm of a simply unforgettable event.
It is the second most important event on the Riviera after Nice Carnival and is just ahead of the Monaco Formula 1. More than 300 professionals work on the project and 145 tons of citrus fruits are used.
