What’s on this month? July Events in Provence 2018
Contributor blog post by Ashley Tinker:
Cicadas, Cherries et Chaleur!
It’s full summer here in Provence. The cigales are singing (quite loudly I must say!) and the sunflowers and lavender are in full bloom. The ballet (or science?) of knowing when to open and close your shutters has been mastered for all those without air conditioning. We’ve gotten back into the habit of the afternoon sieste, and getting together with friends over copious glasses of rosé. Make sure to look out for small signs in town of fête du Pistou (delicious local pesto soup evenings in the main village squares).

Music lovers can find all genres from jazz in the streets (St Remy and Avignon) to classical piano and line dancing at la Roque d’Anthéron. For those who like the stage, you are in luck with the 72nd annual Festival d’Avignon and in Orange, the Les Chorégies d’Orange performances in the Téâtre Anique (old Roman theatre) is not to be missed. Possibly the most interesting on the list is July 7th in Miramas: Championnat du Monde de Soupe au Pistou. It’s your chance to watch would be chefs compete for bragging rights for the best vegetable soup.
Enjoy July in Provence. The cicadas are calling.
