The Croix-Rousse Celebrates!

This coming Saturday, 11 June, the 4th district of Lyon will be hosting its 10th annual Croix-Rousse en fête, a street fair that assembles local shopkeepers, regional artisans and creators of jewelry, hand crafts and other specialized goods.

From 9am to 7pm, the entire length of the Grande rue de la Croix-Rousse, as well as several adjoining streets, will be turned into a pedestrian-friendly open-air market (no cars) where visitors can stroll and shop in a convivial and festive atmosphere.

If you're looking for second-hand items, make sure to stop by the vide grenier (yard sale) located on and around the Place de la Croix-Rousse.

This year's Fête gets jazzed up with entertainment from Musik et Dépendance(s) and a musical variety interpreted by the St. Exupéry High School students.

You can see a schedule of the day's events here. For more general information about expos, events and other activities happening in the Croix-Rousse, you can visit this site here.

Below are some of the posters used to promote the Croix-Rousse en fête from previous years.
