What's On and Things To Do

Events

Violet Festival

Violet Festival

The Violet Festival has taken place in Tourettes-sur-Loup since 1952. Violet production became this village's main agricultural activity in 1880.

Every year in March, the Violet Festival rounds off the violet season and celebrates spring. The village streets are full of activity from 9.30am, with dawn serenades and local dances. The whole village is full of flowers and the sweet scent of early spring. A Floral Procession starts in the early afternoon. The day ends with the Flower Battle, which everyone can take part in.
