Fête de la Libération en centre ville, cérémonie et bal populaire


This festive date is specifically marteven, since it celebrates the liberation of the city on August 22, 1944, after four years of German occupation.

A momentous date for the history of Martigues, which the city had to commemorate at the height of its importance, to the height also of the lioness that took the inhabitants that day.

Therefore, the official ceremony in honour of the elders who lived in the occupation will be followed by great rejoicing to animate the three city centres. Among other things, a craft market, accompanied by buvettes, it goes without saying, and a big ball as before, it goes even more self! As always in Martigues, the entertainment of this particular day is open to all, the varied rhythms of the popular ball are there to invite all generations to mix joyfully!
