Les Fetes de Bayonne 2019

Bayonne, France | 24th - 28th July

France’s biggest festival Les Fetes de Bayonne

Includes a beautiful stay in stoke surf house accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, experienced guides, transfers to and from Bayonne and one hell of an experience!

Inspired by San Fermin (Running of the Bulls) in Spain, to the extent that they even copied the official outfit… Les Fetes de Bayonne’s party-goers wear all white with a red scarf and a red belt.
The Bulls even make an appearance during the festival. If you dare, you can jump into the ring with them, the main aim is to get out alive and get back to the Stoke Travel bar in time for the campsite party!

It all starts on a Wednesday night when the festival’s mascot, King Leon, throws Bayonne’s city keys from the town hall balcony down to the crowds below. This ceremony kicks off the 5 days and nights of non-stop partying, dancing, firework dodging and sangria drinking alongside some of the most delightful creatures France has to offer.
There are carnival-like parades, tamborradas (an impressive parade of noisy drummers), basque sport competitions, traditional basque dance and music, as well as nightly concerts and fireworks displays.

Get involved in French culture and join in on the world championship of bell pepper omelets held at the local market!

We’re experts at Bayonne festival, we have been partying with the French since our first days in this part of the world, waaaaay too many moons ago, and there will be no shortage of Stoke Travel party animals to show you the ropes – we all love this festival from the bottom of our livers…
