Strawberry Fair In Carpentras
8th May is the day of the Strawberry Fair when the town is full of the fragrance of all types of strawberries. The Confrérie de la Fraise parade through the town in their ceremonial robes and, of course, there are the numerous speeches, which you can avoid by enjoying testing the various liqueurs and wines based on the strawberry. Chefs from all over the area tempt you with their special strawberry dishes and, of course, there is live music and other festivities to enjoy. You can learn about all the different species of strawberry and even try your hand at blind tastings of them.
It is so delightful the way the French celebrate every fruit and vegetable and creat a fun festival at the time of the harvesting.
