Festivals and traditions
Throughout the year, the people of Chablis share their history and passions with you through a range of festivals and events, with discovery and conviviality always the order of the day!
La Saint-Vincent Tournante du Chablisien
Chablis and the surrounding area celebrates the patron saint of winemakers for one weekend each year. The event involves wine tastings, street theater, marching bands and traveling musicians. La Saint Vincent Tournante is hosted by a different winegrowing village each year.
Fête des Vins et le baptême du Millésime
The fourth weekend in October is when the Chablis wine festival and vintage baptism take place. Wine lovers, experts, professionals and the general public gather in the center of the village of Chablis to celebrate the new vintage. Each year offers the opportunity to bring out a few old vintages, to welcome some prestigious guests and to rediscover the big hearts of Chablis locals. There are also different vintages proposed by producers in the streets of the town, producers of local specialities, concerts and a parade by Les Piliers Chablisiens, as well as the induction of new members.
Le Festival du Chablisien
This event takes place every summer in Chablis and its neighboring communes. This musical event, which runs over several days, has become the perfect occasion to strike a chord between music, gastronomy and wine.
