Festivals

During 2015 there will be a large number of events and festivals that will be taking place across the region.  Here we have selected a few that you may be interested in.  As soon as event details are published they will be featured below.

January 11th- March 22nd - Faces of Limoux Carnival 

The annual Carnival is a tradition that has been followed for centuries, where over a series of Saturdays and Sundays different masked and costumes “guilds” parade through the town three times a day (11am, 4.30pm and 10pm) playing music, singing songs and playing pranks (all conducted in the ancient Occitan language). The torch lit evening procession, however, is more sombre and mystical. This year, the main highlight is on Sunday 6th April when all the groups parade, a total of around 500 ‘Carnavaliers’ and 90 musicians!

March 28th and 29th 2015 -  Toques & Clochers Wine Event, in the town of Limoux

The 26th Toques & Clochers wine festival will be held in the town of Limoux 10 minutes from Alet. After rising to the fantastic challenge of planting new grape varieties on the Limoux terroir in the early sixties, Les Vignerons du Sieur d'Arques set out to acheive a new goal at the end of the eighties: organisingan auction of their finest wines. Now this prestigious event attracts buyers from all over the world, Toques et Clochers puts up for auction their most promising barrels of AOC Limoux. The share of the proceeds are then used to finance the renovation of bell towers in surrounding villages. Every year the auction is hosted by one of France's great chefs popularly referred to as a ''Toques'', the traditional white chef's hat.

This weekend festival, celebrating and promoting the chardonnay wines of the region, is an important date each year for local wine producers and international wine buyers. For the rest of us the festival is simply a good old-fashioned knees up!  Find out more at
