Bayonne throws a major party!

Dating back to 1932, when four friends from the Bayonne region decided to start the Bayonne Festival (emulating the festival in Pampalona), this festival has grown in scale, and it's now up there with the most popular events in the country, even in Europe.
The peñas (Festival associations) organise and structure the festivities, while the Bandas (traditional bands often sponsored by peñas) handle the music, one of the most important aspects of any festival in the South West. The parade of illuminated floats which makes its way down the main road is one of the highlights of the festival. Finally, one of the long-standing traditions is the daily "bull running" (although they are in fact cows in this case), which takes place on Place Paul-Bert every Friday, Saturday and Sunday throughout the festival. And finally, don't forget to wear white, with a red neckerchief, if you're attending the Fêtes de Bayonne!

From Wednesday 26 to Sunday 30 July 2017 :
- Wednesday doors open at 22:00
- From Thursday to Sunday doors open at 11:00
