The Fantastic Picnic... you will get addicted!
The 2022 edition will take place on 11 September in Burgundy.

The Fantastic Picnic... you’ll be addicted after a weekend in Beaune and Pays Beaunois!

Romantic, chic, bucolic, Burgundian picnics have proved over several years that they are really FAN-TAS-TIC. Celebrating the Fête de la Gastronomie in Burgundy, it’s saying ‘Cheers!’ to great tastes, taking pleasure in a good bottle produced just a few kilometres away to accompany delicious cheeses. Above all, it’s a festive atmosphere: that of a moment absolutely for sharing... picnic on the grass or feet under a table. The Fantastic Picnic... you will get addicted!

Magical spots to picnic around Beaune

And for those who are more sandwiches, parsley ham and flasks of fresh water, we have come upon a perfect place to set down your picnic basket and your red and white chequered tablecloth. So prepare your straw hat, your summer frock and off you go for the Burgundy countryside. The heroes in our film set out their victuals on the cliffs above Saint-Romain, with their dominant view over the vineyards of Burgundy.
