This festival takes place each year during the third saturday of March in Châtillon-sur-Seine to celebrate the arrival of spring and honour the Cremant of Burgundy. A colourful and musical day, the cooking pot tap festival combines the carnival of the town and wine festival.
Tastings are offered by the local wine growers. The float parade is composed of 500 cooking pots and containers shaken frenetically. This tradition dates back to the Vth century, in the time of the Burgundians.
It was said that the population once hit vigorously on cooking pots to drive away the winter and speed up the start of spring...
