For the record, the Fête des Loges is one of the oldest funfairs in France. It dates back to 1652 and the popular veneration for Saint Fiacre, an Irish monk, celebrated every August 30. In 1652, Pope Innocent X introduces the Saint-Fiacre brotherhood settling in the Chapelle des Loges then quickly becoming a place of pilgrimage and then a procession. Towards the late 18th century, the event turns more and more into an entertainment. In 1893, the municipality decides to switch from 3 to 10 days of celebrations and amalgamates Saint-Louis celebration that was already existing at this time.
Here is an overview of the Fête des Loges:
The Fête des Loges is also paced with celebrations mixing modernity and ancestral traditions. A few dates to save:
Feel like going? To access the fair, it is quite simple, by car, drive the A13 highway from Paris. By train? Ride RER A train up to Gare de Saint-Germain en Laye station (terminus Ouest). A very cute train expects you at the exit of the RER A from 1 p.m. to 11:45 p.m. Allow money, the ride costs €2.5 per person, but is a ride on its own!
A great family-friendly funfair in the wilderness, the perfect idea to have fun this summer!
