La Fête de la Laine, a free outing to Parc de la Courneuve, Sunday, April 7, 2024

Published by Margot de Sortiraparis · Published on April 4th, 2024 at 05:42 p.m.
On the first Sunday of the Easter vacations 2024, we're taking the kids and heading to Parc Georges Valbon (commonly known as Parc de la Courneuve) for the Fête de la Laine 2024!

This year, the 2024 edition of the Fête de la Laine falls right on the Easter vacations 2023. So don't miss the chance to spend an afternoon with the sheep at Parc Georges Valbon, in La Courneuve, from 2pm to 6pm on Sunday April 7.

The Fête de la Laine always takes place in spring, when the sheep need to shed their thick woollen fur to get through the summer. So, every year, the festival gives the general public the chance not only to watch free demonstrations of shearing the flock, but also to get hands-on with wool weaving at a workshop.

The initiative comes from Clinamen, a farmers' association that defends dignified animal husbandry practices, whose herd is based in the Parc Georges Valbon, in Seine-Saint-Denis. With around a hundred individuals in their sheepfold, the association's urban shepherds look after the sheep on a daily basis: in fact, they welcomedtwo babies this year, something that hadn't happened in the flock for two years! Join us on Sunday afternoon, April 7, to discover this 2024 edition of the Fête de la Laine with your family!
