Our stall at the fair

Foire Vent˘se

The Town Council having decided to reinstal this event at ist previous date (a fortnight before Easter), the 2016 Vent˘se Fair was held on March 12th and 13th. It gathered about 50 different exhibitors in different areas : recreational home and garden equipments, food and wine, motorcars, along with a huge fun fair. A flee market had also been organized on Sunday 22nd. 

Like in the former editions, the twinning associations of Dourdan were present. Our stall was set-up besides our friends of the twinning with Bad Wiessee (Germany) along the main lane.

Despite the pretty cool temperature, the visitors were numerous. We displayed the activities of the twinning, with the difficulty that the fair was at the same time as our St Patrick's evening. Thanks to the Members who have helped us to keep our stall.

Medieval festival

The 2017 event was held on June 3rd and 4th. Visitors were particularly numerous and appreciated all the activities and shows offered. Our stall was standing inside the castle, into the so called "Duke of Berry's appartments" (below the walls).

During the two days of the festival, fierce matches were played on our four wooden games (see below), under the survey of the volunteers in charge of keeping our stall, whom we thank very much for their investment

Lot of fun for young players and their parents

  Our presence at the medieval festival not only aims to entertain the crowd of visitors, but also to have the Twinning, its objectives and actions better known, thus encouraging new members to join. Several contacts were recorded, concerning english courses and requests of information on our activities.
