Cotignac’s Fête du Coing (quince festival)

If you have never seen a quince before, you’ll be charmed by it’s pear-like appearance and delighted by the variety of cuisine it can be used in. From tarts to tortes and candy to jelly, this multi-purpose fruit goes a long way here in Provence. It’s Cotignac’s pride and joy and every year the village traditionally celebrates its heritage and harvest in October. This year the festival will took place on the 21st of October and if you missed it, do come back for it next year.

We even have an entire committee with over 20 members that organise the event and every year it’s a total success. Local restaurants and bakeries participate too, with their quince-themed formula menus and pastries.  There is live entertainment too. This year we had a horn band playing jazzy folk.
