Les Absinthiades


LES ABSINTHIADES

(Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 OCTOBER 2013)

In 2001, the Friends of Pontarlier Museum organised the very first event on the theme of absinthe and named it Les Absinthiades. A cultural, educational and awareness-raising event, Les Absinthiades has found its rhythm and its public. Both novices and specialists come from all over the world to its exhibitions, lectures, shows, tasting competitions and collectors fair. Over the last 10 years, almost 35,000 "artemisophiles" have come to know the absinthe fever after attending Les Absinthiades in Pontarlier.

Many different people are involved in the event: collectors, authors, artists, actors, distillers, chocolate makers, the media, public and private partners and many volunteers from the Friends of Pontarlier Museum.
