We hope to see lots of children at the opening ceremony, as has been the case in the past.

At 4.45pm balloons will be released to launch the 5 day festival.
Meet us on the town hall square at 4.15pm to prepare the messages.
The child whose message lands the furthest away wins a surprise...
The person who finds the balloon where it lands sends the message back to the child. When you receive it, just bring it to the Sarmentelles office.
The owner of the balloon that travelled the furthest will be rewarded.

When Beaujolais Nouveaux arrives the whole village is immersed in music and tastings...
Beaujolais rhymes with festivity and conviviality!!!!

In the streets of Beaujeu, beside or aboard the little train, enthusiasts can taste the 12 Beaujolais appellations with a musical background, and admire the heritage of the historical capital of the Beaujolais region.
Along the tasting trail, you can participate in a tasting competition and try to recognise the vintage of each appellation.
1st prize: to discover soon - 2nd prize: 60 bottles of Beaujolais Nouveau
A tasting glass is available for 5€ at the beginning of the tasting trail.
