"Féria": Each village has its own fete, inseparable from the Landes way of life. The féria is a time for having fun with old friends, where tourists and locals gladly "blend together".
The bullfighting culture is festive and very pronounced in the Landes, and in Dax in particular, during the féria in mid-August. Red and white are the colours to wear if you don't want to look like a Sunday tourist!
Discover Landes folklore through "courses landaises" and stilt-walking shows in the Landes arenas. "Course landaise" is different from other forms of bullfighting (corrida, Portuguese corrida, and course camarguaise) in that it uses females exclusively (cows from the Landes) and does not involve killing. This traditional Landes sport has remained the major event of village fetes since the 1830s.
The game consists of provoking the animal then skillfully dodging it at the last minute. The cows are bred in farms, called ganaderias, in pine forests and participate in games for several years. The "écarteur" or dodger performs spectacular acrobatic figures such as summersaults, swan dives, spiral vaults, and leaps with their legs tied together in a beret...
