St-Rémy-de-Provence holds a number of festivals, sometimes more than one per month, during all months of the year. These range from small, local events to large events which attract visitors, but no matter what event you attend in the region it is sure to be a good time.
Bastille Day, July 14th, is a national holiday in France and in St-Rémy-de-Provence they celebrate the occasion over a period of two full days. The highlight of the celebration is the running of the bulls, similar to the famous running of the bulls in Spain, but not as dangerous. St-Rémy's event organizers take care that no bulls or people are hurt. Festivities are held after the bull events in the town's many bars and cafés.
During late September Les Fêtes de St. Rémy are held in honor of the town's patron saint. As part of the celebrations parades are held in the streets and people wear traditional Provençal costumes. Traditional bull fighting events are also held. The festivities typically last for six days and attract tourists from across France and Europe.
Christmas is also a time of celebration in St-Rémy. For a week before the holiday public dinners and musical events are held, and the outdoor market sells special goods during extended hours.
