When it comes to catering, visitors will be spoilt for choice with numerous options on offer throughout the 4 days, including the much-anticipated Banquet de la mer (a fishing port festival relocated for the occasion) to be held on Place de la Motte-Rouge on Sunday June 23 from 12pm.

The Belem, the Shtandart, the Français, the Morgenster, the Santa Maria Manuela.
Our festival celebrates them! They have a long history, which we'll be happy to tell you about soon. You don't have to be a sailor to visit them over the 4 days. And who knows, maybe... you'll feel the call of the sea on the decks of these giants of the sea.
Visits to the ships will take place on the quayside from 10:00 am to 6:30 pm.
Tickets will be available at the Tourist Office, at the site entrances and via the website.

Access to the Fêtes Maritimes is free of charge, except for visits to the tall ships.

Please note that the boats are not wheelchair accessible.
