    Les Fêtes de Bayonne 2021

    We’re experts at Bayonne festival, we have been partying with the French since our first days in this part of the world.

    Les Fêtes de Bayonne 2021

    We’re experts at Bayonne Festival, having partied with the French since our first days in this part of the world, waaaaay too many moons ago, and there will be no shortage of Stoke Travel party animals to show you the ropes – we all love this festival from the bottom of our livers.

    Includes a beautiful stay in the Stoke Surf House accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, experienced guides, transfers to and from Bayonne and one hell of an experience! Inspired by San Fermin (Running of the Bulls) in Spain, to the extent that they even copied the official outfit…Les Fetes de Bayonne’s party-goers wear all white with a red scarf and a red belt. The bulls even make an appearance during the festival. If you dare, you can jump into the ring with them, although the main aim is to get out alive and get back to the Stoke Travel bar in time for the campsite party!

    It all starts on a Wednesday night when the festival’s mascot, King Leon, throws Bayonne’s city keys from the town hall balcony down to the crowds below. This ceremony kicks off the 5 days and nights of non-stop partying, dancing, firework dodging and sangria drinking alongside some of the most delightful creatures France has to offer.

    There are carnival-like parades, tamborradas (an impressive parade of noisy drummers), Basque sport competitions, traditional Basque dance and music, as well as nightly concerts and fireworks displays.

    Get involved in French culture and join in on the world championship of bell pepper omelets held at the local market!

    I had always wanted to experience Les Fetes de Bayonne in France, however was kinda afraid of doing it myself. Going on this trip was the perfect solution, cause I got transport from Spain and back, got to experience the bulls and best of all- the crazy street parties in, and then had the best time ever on this surfing trip!! For someone who has only ever surfed a couple of times before it was amazing because we had really good guides! It was a perfect amount of time, met the best people on this trip and can’t wait to do another trip with Stoke. There is such a variety! It was nice to go between France and Spain too as you get a mix of cultures. 10/10 trip
