Fête de la Lavande. This day-long festival, usually held around Aug. 15, is entirely dedicated to lavender. Village folk dress in traditional Provençal garb and parade on bicycles, horses leap over barrels of fragrant bundles of hay, and local producers display their wares at the market—all of which culminates in a communal dinner (€20) served with lavender-based products.
