The “Fête des moissons” or “Harvest Festival” has been held in the little village of Cénac et Saint Julien – population just over 1,000 inhabitants – since 1988.
This year 2017 was unfortunately a scaled down event. Nonetheless it featured the traditional Perigord region dances – with dancers in mid 19th century costumes -, old trades like wood cutting and wood carving and of course threshing the old fashion way demonstrations and of course the never missing car show.
As for Cenac et Saint Julien itself, a small rural community situated on the left side of Dordogne River in the heart of Perigord Noir region, it is a typical regional village with slate roof houses built of usually of sandstone.
