Village Festivals: all through the summer...

All through the summer the villages of the Gers organize their own local annual festival. The main festivals are probably on July 14th (national celebration) in many of the bigger villages, but August 15th is also a popular date for special annual festivals. For example in Gondrin where the ('Kinzout' festival week will take place around August 15th.

Even the smallest of villages is proud to organize their own local festivals or 'repas' (meals) where villagers sit together in the evening at long tables enjoying Gascony dishes and drinks. Authentic and traditional!

Bullfighting...

Unfortunately, the tradition of bullfighting is still present here in the Gers. This barbaric tradition is however no more of this time and age and hopefully will be completely abandoned soon. On this website you will not find any information on this topic except for this advice: don't go there!
