What's on in Bordeaux September 2017

Summer is almost over... but not quite finished yet! With music festivals and traditional wine harvest festival, September is a great time to visit Bordeaux.

Everyones favourite marathon, the Marathon des Chateaux du Medoc takes place on Saturday 10th September, and what's not to love?  Every year runners gather for the Médoc marathon which winds its way through over 50 vineyards of this special region. the bonus of this marathon is that the 'refreshment' stations offer red and white wine (as well as the usual clear stuff).  The following morning there is a 10km recovery walk, well in fact it's a wine tasting tour which ends with a large celebratory lunch. Now that's my kind of event.

The Darwin Climax Festival brings some of the world's top musicians to the heart of Bordeaux for a climate-conscious open air festival. Bands to perform at this third edition of the event in 2017 include, Morcheeba, The Kooks, Pete Doherty and Amadou & Mariam. As a music fan this is an event not to be missed!!

Across France mid-September brings with it the annual European Heritage Days. Exceptional locations around France, including Bordeaux, will be open to visit on the Journées du Patrimoine. Museums, churches, and galleries all open their doors to the public for a weekend of celebration and the event has become increasingly popular over the years.

Saint Emilion continues the wine theme with this annual Ban des Vendanges. The Autumn Festival in Saint-Emilion celebrates the wine and heritage of this medieval city. The Jurade are the Saint-Emilion wine brotherhood who historically had administrative rights over the town.  As part of the festival, they parade through the town in their traditional crimson robes reminiscent of the all-powerful aldermen of centuries past. For a touch of history with your glass of red, this is one event not to miss.
