Some memories on video

La Fête des Loges in 2019











Historical

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

For nearly four centuries, the Fête des Loges has been returning to the heart of the forest of Saint-Germain-en-Laye and invites the public from July 2nd to August 15th, 2021!
This 368th edition will be placed under the sign of conviviality, reunion and thrills! It is also a great opportunity to share festive moments, with family or friends, combining emotion & happiness.
Visitors will be able to fill up on good humor and price while having fun on the many attractions for young and old in complete safety or just strolling.
To enjoy the first rays of sunshine, the unmissable Allée des Cuisines offers the lucky ones to sit on one of the terraces to taste its famous suckling pig or traditional menu!
The Fairground Industrialists, the Fête des Loges committee and I are particularly happy to meet the visitors who we missed in 2020!
We should also remember that a health protocol will be put in place throughout the Fête des Loges in order to take all the necessary precautions.

Aurélien Hector,
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
