National Apricot Festival


National Apricot Festival

During a weekend placed under the sign of the flavors of the soil, the folklore and the user-friendliness, the festival-goers will have any leisure to taste the apricot under all its forms.

Between the vast market full of local flavors and the plethora of proposed activities, the festival program promises to be exquisite! This event gathers, every two years, all the inhabitants of Saxon as well as of the surroundings.

The promise of a varied program puts, each edition, everyone in agreement. We can’t wait to unveil the long-awaited summer calendar for 2022…
