The 16th edition of the Grand Siècle Day in Vaux-le-Vicomte is scheduled on Sunday June 7, 2020: For a day, costume and history enthusiasts are expected to relive the atmosphere of the 17th century in this wonderful estate. The confinement to curb the coronavirus epidemic not allowing to prepare the Grand Siècle Day, it is then cancelled.

This Sunday June 7, 2020, Vaux-le-Vicomte estate invites us for the 16th Grand Siècle Day. Even though the celebration doesn’t require us to come all dressed-up in period costumes, it will be a shame not to be noticed because, for a day, we go back to the 17th century, at the time of celebrations with Nicolas Fouquet!

On the occasion, history and/or costume passionate are invited to show up in their most beautiful costumes, for a festive day at the Petit Versailles.

A day devoted to the Grand Siècle costumes during which baroque dance are mixed with musketeer shows and rides in horse-drawn carriages, for a unique experience of the French art de vivre at the time of Louis XIV and Nicolas Fouquet!

New this year: the château invites dressed-up visitors to create living scenes thanks to the giant frames scattered across the garden and inside the château.

In order to celebrate 50 years since the opening of the estate to the public, the château renews with its tradition of sharing with as many people as possible and invites visitors to vote for the best costumes of the day!

And for those of you who couldn’t have costumes, you can rent one at the entrance.

This year, entries will have to be booked only! Don't forget to book in advance!
