Burgundy's Fantastic Picnic

September 20 - 22 on the shores of Burgundy

The idea of organizing a "Fantastic Picnic" sprang up in 2011 in Burgundy to celebrate La Fete de la Gastronomie where the pleasures of the Palace are an "art de vivre" and sometimes just simply... an art!

Enjoy the Outdoors:
Burgundy invites all the Burgundians (and those at heart), to have an incredible experience and, of course, an incredible culinary experience to share with friends or family during these "Fantastic Picnics." Raise a glass among the vines, lunch in a 1960s style guingette while listening to hits from the era, recreate Manet's "Dejeuner sur l'herbe," plunge yourself into the world of Collette, dine in a wine cellar, go on treasure hunts, and ride a bike along the canals of Burgundy.

Good Food & Company
Burgundy specialties will be offered to participants on location. Great local chefs will prepare local cuisine from barbeque grills, and winemakers will offer drinks. You can also bring your own picnic basket and enjoy your own meals!

The Canals of Burgundy:
This year's "Fantastic Picnic" will take place all along the canals and rivers of Burgundy, promising an unforgettable experience, and a unique occasion to rediscover the rich heritage of Burgundy's waterways.
