Traditional fair of Autrefois Challans

For two Thursdays in both July and August, Challans goes back in time. From dawn till dusk the town celebrates ‘the good old days’, starting with a poultry, butter, egg, and pig fair. There are parades and lots of free activities, but its best to get a timetable of events from the tourist information office so you don’t miss anything.
