The Tourrette-Levens Fete Medievale is an annual event that takes place each April. Musicians and storytellers, magicians and artisans, knights and their ladies take part in celebrations and performances. This festival is suitable for a family vacation as it is peaceful and entertaining.
The whole village looks exactly like in the Middle Ages due to re-enactments of daily-life scenes, fighting demonstrations, local food, and concerts. Craftsmen from all over France come to Tourrette-Levens to demonstrate their skills and masterpieces. You can find them either at the medieval market or specially established shops.
Also, there is a traditional costume parade. Even those people who may come to the village accidentally may participate, as there are costumes for rent. The Tourrette-Levens medieval festival is especially beloved by children because there are numerous activities for them. This world that appears straight out of the history books is friendly for every visitor.
