The Fête des Loges 2017

For four centuries, the Fête des Loges has been pleasing many children and adults throughout summer! This festive encounter is back from Friday June 30 to Sunday August 20 (included) to make you enjoy over 200 attractions scattered across the wonderful setting of the Saint-Germain-en-Laye forest.

The Fête des Loges comes back for its 365th edition held from June 30 to August 20, 2017, for the greatest pleasure of children and adults. For about two months, numerous popular entertaining and amusing attractions will take over the Saint-Germain-en-Laye forest.

Once again this year, over 200 attractions will be set up allowing visitors to spend a friendly and casual time through the aisles of the Fête des Loges. Between two mouthfuls of toffee apple, waffle or crepe, they will give themselves over to vertigo and thrills. From the ghost train to the Jet roller coaster, via the timeless rifle ranges, there will be something for everyone. Children will go for Hook a Duck, small boats or children rides whereas adults will give themselves over to thrills at the CountDown, the Katapult, the Power Maxxx or the Niagara.

Spread over 8 hectares, the Fête des Loges is the most famous funfair in Île de France and one of the biggest in Europe! Last year, millions of people came to have fun at the edge of the Saint-Germain-en-Laye forest.

There is also something else that is great at the Fête des Loges: you have fun of course but you can eat very well too! You should give a go to the Allée des Cuisines where 15 restaurants do battle against each other to get your vote.  The unquestioned specialty, the spit-roast suckling pig, is to be tried. You will also find specialties from all over the world: Brazil, America, Alsace, Mexico… the hardest part is to make a choice.

The Brasserie Milot offers you French products only but with a very friendly concept: you roast your meat yourself on a volcanic stone. Treat yourself at Tante Francine, the only Norman restaurant, offering you a ham hock baked in a wood-fired oven which is to die for. At Fred et Chouchou, you will find Auvergne. Averyon cold cuts, and products from Cantal are here for the taking. In a traditional Western atmosphere, the Saloon will make you travel thanks to French, Italian and American dishes… Enjoy the traditional mussels and French fries or the timeless ribs baked in a wood-fired oven…

At the Paillote, relax atmosphere, burgers and kebabs galore are the watchwords. At Brasil Team, festive atmosphere, dinner and a show are a requirement for a complete change of scenery. At Les Patates, a genuine potato festival is served with homemade sauces.

For small sweet treats, you will always find cotton candies, lollypops and donuts to eat to your heart’s content.

Here is an overview of what awaits you:

Highlights of this edition 2017:

She will represent the Fête des Loges for the year and ensure her mission by meeting hospitalized children and senior persons in retirement homes.

  • Thursday July 27: Fiacre Day As happens every year, Fiacre Day will be celebrated on Thursday July 27 at 11 a.m. during a mass said by Monsignor Eric Aumônier, Versailles bishop and in presence of Father Thierry Faure, parish priest of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, in memory of this Irish monk, patron saint of gardeners and market gardeners. On this special day, the attractions and aisles of the Fête des Loges will be covered in flowers.

As a memo, in order to combine well-lit funfair and energy saving, the Fête des Loges favors LED light bulbs. It promotes sustainable development by controlling the water and fuel use.
