Fête de la Saint Eloi

Maillane - Centre ville - Provençal Tradition - In July - Dates and program to be confirmed - Free

These ancient festivals take place in the villages of the Provence Mistralian between Rhône and Durance, Alpilles. It is in honour of Saint Eloi, that runs the Carreto Ramado, topped with green chariot drawn by horses that pass through the streets of the village at a gallop. More that a folk festival, these festivals are a living tradition and a wide place to Provencal customs and the magnificent costume of Arles.Detailed programme available at the Tourist Office.
