St. Martin's Day is celebrated on the second weekend in November and the "Revira" on the third weekend. A unique opportunity to taste the traditional dishes of these festivals in the various restaurants of the region. High quality specialities are served in a friendly, intimate and authentic atmosphere, allowing guests to discover or rediscover the charm of a traditional St. Martin's festival.
Some establishments also offer entertainment, concerts and a variety of accompanying events.

St. Martin is a festival of peasant origin that takes place every year in mid-November. It is a festival very close to the hearts of the people of the Jura who, on this occasion, like to show a piece of their homeland to their friends from other areas. It is a festival where conviviality, authenticity and typical flavours play the leading role.
The menu is composed as follows:
·         Bouillon
·         Aspic
·         Cream pudding
·         Boiled pork
·         Grilled meats
·         Garnished sauerkraut
·         Pork roast
·         Toetché
·         Damassine sorbet and other delicacies...
This year the restaurant owners are competing to offer their guests an exceptional St. Martin's festival.
Experience the activities, the novelties and above all the delicious dishes that will enchant your tastebuds...
