If you want to immerse yourself in local traditions, the old-fashioned fairs put on every summer by the volunteers from Autrefois Challans are an experience not to be missed! For four Thursdays, the town centre closes to "modern" traffic and comes alive as it did in the good old days. It's a well-oiled machine that takes you back in time, with a funfair, traditional games, wagon rides, a farm produce fair, demonstrations of old trades, vintage shops and cars, market garden dances and shows... all free of charge and all in traditional costume.
