Fete de la coquille Saint Jacques


23 March 2024 au 24 March 2024

Over the years, it has become an unmissable gastronomic event, the Scallop Festival is back for its 14th edition in Villard de Lans on March 18 & 19.
Animations by great Chefs, tastings and sales, Breton specialities, concerts.

This year, we have the pleasure to receive a sponsor of competition with the chef Christophe Le Fur.
Starred chef of the Auberge de Grand Maison in Mur de Bretagne, he has honored us with his presence for years and has agreed to be the sponsor of this 14th edition.

The talent of Great Chefs and the freshness of this exceptional product, arriving directly from the Bay of St Brieuc, make this event an atypical celebration in the mountains.
A dedicated fishery of about forty boats allows to bring 40 tons of scallops in the night of Friday to the early morning of Saturday.

- sale of scallops in boxes or canned scallops
