Foire aux dindons de Varaignes

The 54th Varaignes Turkey Fair

Varaignes is 30 km from Angoulême in the department of the Dordogne, and every year hosts a completely unique event!

More than 150 exhibitors crowd the streets of the village for this French take on Thanksgiving. The programme includes turkey parades and tastings of semi-fermented vin bourru and roast chestnuts, both of which are local artisanal specialities. The Château hosts events, with musical accompaniment by brass bands and folk musicians.

At 12:30, it’s time for the great banquet that feeds more than 700 people in a friendly party atmosphere every year.
