From Friday, August 30th to Sunday, September 1st, 2019: THE ESSENTIAL APPOINTMENT OF THE LILLOISE RETURN!
Every first weekend of September, the largest flea market in Europe attracts more than 2 million visitors for two days and a night of madness!
The Braderie de Lille is certainly one of the most famous events in France and beyond the borders. Imagine 10,000 "bradeux" exhibiting on 100 km of sidewalks where, during 33 hours non stop, everything is bought and everything is sold! A crowd coming from all over the world presses to find the rare pearl, to make its harvest of good deals, but also and especially to plunge into an atmosphere in the image of the city: convivial and festive.
Come stay in Lille during this festive weekend to enjoy good mussels fries and climb the famous pile of mussels!
