Poultry Days of Bourg en Bresse

Poster Les Glorieuses 2016

Happy Bresse chicken. The animal in the colours of the Tricolore - blue feet, white feathers, red comb - has at least ten square metres of run, is fed only local maize or buckwheat and slaughtered at the farm.
This is what the strict breeding rules for the Bresse chicken, which have been in place since 1936, prescribe.

At the annual Les Glorieuses beauty contests held in December in Louhans, Pont-de-Vaux, Montrevel-en-Bresse and Bourg-en-Bresse, the best capons and poulards from Bresse are chosen. And it has been since 1862.

In addition to the product show and award ceremony, there are photo and art exhibitions, cinema and a colourful music programme.
Wines from Burgundy and the Jura can be tasted and some restaurants in the region offer special menus with Bresse-Chicken.
