What To Do During October in Normandy

Published on October 14, 2019 by Chris Robinson

Looking for ideas for what to do during October in Normandy? The weekend of the 18th to 20th October is La Foire Saint-Luc. It's held just outside Gavray and is a typical Normandy country fair.decorated pumpkins

More than 600 exhibitors and 100,000 visitors are expected over the three days. The fair is one of the oldest in La Manche and dates from the late 12th century. Cattle, horses, dogs and poultry will all be on display together. Other entertainment will include country dancing.

And don't miss the tent displaying the pumpkins. There's an annual pumpkin decorating competition with categories for different ages and also adults. This was one of the stalls on the market in Gavray last weekend and they'll have sold out very quickly.

October In Normandy

For foodies, there will be food tents galore and cookery demonstrations. You can find out more information on the Gavray website. For other events happening in October in Normandy, the Tourist Board website has more details.

Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
