  • Provencal market on Thursday morning.
  • Many temporary exhibitions at the cultural space.
  • The Flower Parade, the festival of the Sun and Flowers: in March. One of the most anticipated events in which a flood of color and music will sweep the waterfront with its 18,000 spectators and the very active participation of all inhabitants of Le Lavandou, it's time for an afternoon witnessed a parade of flowers. More than twenty thousand chariots dressed in flowers and adorned with their finest attire come in a colorful dance alongside cheerleaders, musicians, bands and troubadours. The famous battle will close the festival of the sun and flowers, and you will bring home a souvenir of this amazing day.
  • The Feast of St. John, traditionally accompanied by large fires, is held annually to celebrate the longest day of the year. It takes place on June 24, a symbolic date of the summer solstice. Program: torchlight fire on St. John, fireworks and dance in front of City Hall.
  • The feast of St. Peter, in July, is a traditional festival where fishermen celebrate the sea and ask the patron saint of fishermen, St. Peter, fishing is productive throughout the year. The ceremony begins with a procession from the Church of St. Louis, to the place where Ernest Reyers a church service is held outdoors. And then ends with a boat trip for a blessing of the waves. On the program: folkloric dances at the Town Hall, procession, open-air mass (up Ernest Reyer), blessing at sea, anchovy.
  • The Day Romerage in September, revived an old local tradition, when the Lavandou was still a small fishing hamlet attached to Bormes. Once a year, the villagers were celebrating their religious patron - St. Clair - by organizing a long and solemn procession through the streets. Since 1996, the Saint Clair, east of Lavandou, welcomes the bust of the Saint, also patron of seamstresses and whose legend he has the power to cure blindness. Punctuated trombonnades, drop on the beach, singing and dancing, the procession led participants to the church of Saint-Louis in front of the chapel of St. Clair (2 miles). Three short plays, performed in place of Romerage conclude this procession before giving way to folk dances: the dubbing of the prior, representing the civil authority in the place of worship, the giving of gifts to the poor hermit and the Revelation of the Penitent white.
  • Bol des Sables in December. The Bol des Sables is a race quads on the beach from downtown. On a course more and more beautiful each year, the best drivers from across the region are fighting one of the dunes and palm trees waterfront under the eye of many viewers.


  • Visit the surrounding villages.
  • Many walks: Golden Isles (Port-Cros and Le Levant, Porquerolles), boat trips, discovery of the Maures ...
