Some memories on video

La Fête des Loges in 2019


What are the lodges?

This name is certainly very old; when Saint-Louis had a hunting lodge and a chapel dedicated to Saint Fiacre built in 1138 in the forest of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, the buildings were already known at the time as the Hotel of Lodges.

In 1652, Pope Innocent X decides to revive the cult of Saint Fiacre. A brotherhood in the name of this saint was created and indulgences were granted to anyone who visited the chapel dedicated to the patron saint of gardeners and market gardeners on his feast day (August 30).

It was the origin of a pilgrimage, favored by the situation in the forest and by the attraction of summer days when a large number of curious, Parisian walkers in love with the great outdoors found themselves in a friendly atmosphere. This is the origin and the departure of a kind of picturesque fair which transformed over time into an annual celebration.

Today, La Fête des Loges is the biggest fair in France during the summer on an area of ​​8 hectares ...

The gastronomic side of the Festival always grabs the attention of visitors; he evokes a bit of the Rabelaisian feasts and the medieval festivities granted to the good people. These country meals in the famous "Alley of Kitchens" have retained a pleasant bonton atmosphere which is now inseparable from the renowned, universal, Fête des Loges.

La Fête des Loges Committee

Like every year for almost four centuries, La Fête des Loges invites you to meet, from June 26 to August 16, in the heart of the Forest of Saint-Germain-en-Laye.
La Fête des Loges is the only fun fair that has a restaurant aisle, known as the kitchen aisle.
This 368th edition will be festive, dynamic, friendly, full of emotions and thrills! Joyful moments to share with family or friends.
Visitors will be full of good humor thanks to the many attractions and restaurants that compete in imagination to surprise you.
La Fête des Loges fairgrounds, my team and I are happy to welcome visitors to one of the oldest fairgrounds thanks to which we strive to perpetuate these ancestral traditions. We invite you to follow us and relay our information via social networks.
Pleased to welcome you!

Morgan Joubert,
President of La Fête des Loges Committee

A word from the mayor

Saint-Germain-en-Laye is a city of history but also a city that knows how to renew itself while respecting its past and its identity. La Fête des Loges is the perfect illustration of our attachment to tradition, since it has been held since 1652, and of our aspiration to modernity. The fairground world uses its imagination every year to offer visitors surprising attractions in what is the biggest summer funfair in France. It is a great source of pride for our city to welcome it and be by the fairgrounds throughout these seven weeks of celebration and entertainment. Everyone will find again this year what makes the essence and the fame of La Fête des Loges with its usual inauguration, the eagerly awaited election of the Queen of the Lodges, the traditional Saint-Fiacre and the gourmet alley of the kitchens. As always, the Fairground Committee and the City worked side by side to perpetuate the festive spirit and its family character in the heart of our beautiful forest in Saint-Germain-en-Laye. Let the festivities begin !

Arnaud Péricard,
Mayor of Saint-Germain-en-Laye
