    At the beginning, religious since it is based on the celebrations of 15 August dedicated to the Virgin, it is also the feast of the village, marked, in the Middle Ages, by a great agricultural fair in the park of the Chapel of Our Lady of the Queste.

    Breeders and merchants came from all over the Gulf to sell and buy many goods and livestock. It was also the occasion for rejoicing, animated by music and dances, which remained anchored in the hearts of the inhabitants.

    That is why, today, from the land to the sea, this festival of the village is perpetuated by celebrating the tradition, whether religious with masses and procession, festive with ball, spectacle and fireworks, or Still culinary with the great aïoli of the Queste.

    Provence is a land of traditions and Grimaud is no exception to the rule! Every year, in mid-August, Grimaud is in a festive mood!

    The origin of this festival is lost in the past centuries. Initially, it was a religious festival based on the celebrations of the 15th of August dedicated to the Virgin Mary. In the Middle Ages, it was also the village's festival, marked by a large agricultural fair in the grounds of the Notre Dame de la Queste chapel. Farmers and merchants came from all over the Gulf to sell and buy numerous goods and livestock.

    It was also an occasion for rejoicing, with music and dancing, which has remained in the hearts of the inhabitants. This is why, today, from the land to the sea, this village festival is perpetuated by celebrating the tradition, whether it is religious with masses and processions, festive with a ball, show and fireworks, or culinary with the great "aïoli de la Queste".
