Alicoque ou Fête de l'Huile Nouvelle (32ème édition)
Thursday 04 February to Sunday 07 February 2016
Each year, on the first February weekend, the "Festival of the new oil" aka "Alicoque", showcases the treasure of Nyons, the olive oil. In 2016, the city and the Brotherhood of the Knights of the Olive Tree, will invite you to the 32th edition of this great traditional festival.
At the end of the olive harvest and when the new oil starts to flow mills, you are all invited to come and enjoy. Large tables are set on the Place des Arcades and each is grilled croutons to rub garlic and soaked in olive oil the first of the year. This free tasting, called Alicoque, major highlight of the weekend, was opened by the Grand Master of the Brotherhood of the Knights of the Olive tree and the Mayor of Nyons.
