In Lyon, autumn is the season for street markets, which get livelier and more numerous each year. Lille is looking over its shoulder!

Lyon Braderie Festival

More than just a street market, this is a fully fledged festival, with six main locations scattered throughout the Presqu’île district: the Village des Créateurs on Place Sathonay, with street food, DJ sets and playlists in the evening; tables and deck chairs set up on Place de la République; a green oasis on Place des Jacobins; games and workshops for families at the Grand Hôtel-Dieu; culinary demonstrations and tastings on Place Ampère; a fashion show, wardrobe clear-out and art performances in Confluence, and more… All of the locations are turned into pedestrian areas specially for the event. 

From Friday 13 to Sunday 15 September 2023
