Details: The third weekend in November is always that of the “3 Glorieuses,” one of the highlights of the year in Beaune and Burgundy, a multicultural celebration of the wines of Beaune.
From Friday to Sunday – 3 days of celebrations with wine tasting at the famous Hôtel-Dieu as well as in a large number of cellars in town and at local winegrowing estates. The pedestrian streets are the scene of much revelry with clowns, automata, and parades of people in traditional dress. Pipes and drums are played to see off the hardy contestants taking part in the “Foulées de Beaune” (a kind of mini-marathon).
