The Montmartre Harvest Festival: combining tradition and looking to the future
Published on 20 September 2021 in Events
Celebrating the harvest of the famous Montmartre vineyard, the Fête des Vendanges, founded in 1934, quickly became a hugely popular event that no local would want to miss. Combining a popular festival and a celebration of food and wine, the event invites you to enjoy parades, concerts, picnics, and much more in a warm and friendly atmosphere... And it all takes place less than half an hour's walk from your Hotel Les Plumes.
Montmartre, land of tradition ...
Montmartre, although long since a part of Paris, remains for its inhabitants like a small village and the Fête des Vendanges is an opportunity to celebrate its spirit. The five days of the event, from October 6th to 10th, will be filled with unmissable moments that everyone awaits with eager anticipation. These include performances by the children’s choir assembled from the schools of the 18th arrondissement, the ceremonial start of the harvest, the grand parade, the closing ball and big picnic. Come along and immerse yourself in the popular, rebellious and good-natured spirit of this special district.
... looking to the future
The future is the theme of the 2021 edition of the Fête des Vendanges de Montmartre. You can enjoy the Decibels Vendanges contemporary music festival, the Futur en Forme large scale fitness classes, or the closing ball which picks up on the future theme by inviting you to attend disguised as a robot or alien. Don’t miss the Parcours du Goût (Taste Trail), where you can meet producers from all over France who cultivate ancestral savoir-faire while facing the challenges of today and sharing the results with you.
You can take part in the Fête des Vendanges in Montmartre as a family or a couple, for a brief visit or for the entire five days of the event. Take the opportunity to visit the vineyard and taste a glass of the only wine produced in Paris!
