Every even year, for an entire week-end, over fifty artisans santonniers gather in the main squares of Aubagne.

Their creations have been carefully selected to make of this market a reference in France. 

With their generous forms, "naïf" type earthenware figurines coexist with more traditional ones... a wide range of colors to be discovered.

Two animation days for a reference event which opens the christmastime celebration.

From late November to December 31st, the city organizes Chrismas animations such as a giant nativity scene, the walk of the living santons, choirs, tales, the animated Advent Calendar, the rink and the traditional winter market for ceramic and santon.
