One of the most beautiful traditional festival of Provence. Every year, flocks of sheep leave Provence in the spring for the pastures of the Alps.

This trip was formerly on foot sometimes requiring more than ten days of walking. This festival recreates an old custom.

Every year, it brings together all the breeders of the region and their herds, more than 4,000 sheep, lambs and rams, as well as goats and transhumance donkeys supervised by shepherds in traditional costumes, parade in the morning around the city centre.All day long, flea market and cheese fair
