Alicoque or Fête de l'Huile Nouvelle (36rd edition)
26110 Nyons

The 1st weekend of February, the Fête de l'Huile d'Olive Nouvelle or Alicoque puts in the honor the treasure of Nyons, its olive oil. In 2021, the Brotherhood "des Chevaliers de l'Olivier" suits you at the 37th edition of this big traditional party.

At the end of the harvest of olives and as the new oil begins to pass by mills, you are all invited to come to taste it. Big tables are raised on the Place des Arcades and each finds croutons of toast to be rubbed of garlic and to be dipped into the first olive oil of the year. This free tasting, called Alicoque, moment-lighthouse of the weekend, is opened by the Grand Master of the brotherhood "des Chevaliers de l'Olivier" and the Mayor of Nyons. In 2019, it will take place on Sunday, February 3rd from 11 hours. But the festivities begin from Friday preceding the tasting and it, until Sunday evening.
