Traditional Christmas Market
The village is busy with a 3 day Christmas market which sees the streets bustling with families looking for that special gift or just enjoying the fantastic atmosphere. The streets are carpeted for the occasion and apart from the traditional stalls selling their wares there is also a host of street entertainers, Père Noël himself, along with his helpers, jugglers, musicians, rides, a petite ferme and much more. It's a real family treat and a great place to catch up with friends and get into that festive spirit. The lights alone are worth the visit, but the shops and restaurants all play their part in making Valbonne a great place to spend Christmas and New Year. Bonnes Fêtes!
La course du Père Noël
Christmas 2009 saw the good and the brave race around Valbonne village on a 4 kilometre run dressed as Père Noël, just one of the events that surround the festive season here.
