Lessay Fair 2015

Experience our organized tour on the second weekend of September, it’s time for one of Normandy’s biggest gatherings: the Sainte Croix market fair in Lessay!
In days gone by, there used to be an abundance of fairs like this, but they gradually disappeared as the railways expanded. Established by the 11th century Benedictine monks, the Sainte Croix fair has existed for centuries, outliving wars and changing trends.
Three days of events are lined up in this little town, population 1,800. The fair opens on Friday with horse, donkey, dog, ferret and poultry markets, moving on to cattle, sheep and goat markets on Saturday.
You won’t go hungry here, as 74 sellers of roasted and grilled meat prepare over 2,800 lambs to feed the 400,000 strong crowds, who gather here as much for the fairground stalls and performances as they do for the trade markets.
