Ventoux Provence Expo - Carpentras - November 2022

“Ventoux Provence Expo” is the Tourism fair to discover the Ventoux territory from November 25 to 27, 2022. Ventoux in the spotlight with all its land, its culture, its heritage, its crafts and its leisure activities. Nature and good living in its purest form!

A place

In the Saint-Labre car park under the plane tree alleys, a dome structure, with 15 meter crystal sections under the ceiling for light and the feeling of space. This 85m by 30m setting will allow visitors to have a great feeling of immersion in the territory.

A scenography

The key word: Nature (and authenticity). At the entrance, find a village square with its fountain, its bowling green, its public benches or even a monumental lavender wall... in short, an atmosphere of Provence! Responsible reconstructions such as a treetop adventure course, a climbing section, an outdoor zip line and numerous on-site activities such as craft workshops, tastings and local demonstrations.

A rhythm

These spaces/neighborhoods will live throughout the day and continue over 2 lively evenings.

Activities on site but also outside to discover this beautiful destination around Ventoux with the four Intercommunal Tourist Offices Ventoux-Provence, Ventoux-Sud, Vaison Ventoux Provence and Porte du Ventoux, with the Ventoux Natural Park and the commune of Carpentras.

Set off to discover emblematic monuments, strong and distinctive landscapes, and flora and fauna. Fun too, with e-scooter outings organized in the city center, or along the canal. Gourmet walks and many other outings will soon be available to book!

An authenticity

You will only find manufacturers, producers, leisure and well-being providers, local artisans.
