the mode of operation of the 2022 edition

The return of the great braderie of Lille is very near! Two months of festivities – which will take place Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 September – and after two white years due to the Covid-19 epidemic, city mayor Martine Aubry gave details on this 2022 edition, of which France Bleu Nord is a partner. Follow the guide!

A wide perimeter

After already enlarging the perimeter in 2019 (by adding Gambetta Street), the town hall added 26 streets or tronçons de streets this year. Vendors can, for example, be located on Gand Street and Vieux-Faubourg Street in Vieux-Lille, or Tenremonde Street and Delory Street in the city center.

On the other hand, at Wazemmes, there will be space for about twenty stands, place Nouvelle aventure, but only on Saturdays since the market will take place as usual on Sunday. Note that they markets of Vieux-Lille and Sebastopol are also still this weekend, just like that the foraine festival that remains accessible on the esplanade of the Citadel.

Dedicated spaces

Custom areas will be reserved to traders (boulevard de la liberté), to the associations (door of Paris), et to the merchants and their large bags of mold (place Rihour).

The braderie of the children will take place at the Cours Saint-So. And for the first time, there will be a comic strip place Roger Salengro, near the town hall.

Finally, access to the various cultural places involved in Utopia will be possible every weekend, with free museums on Sunday since it will be the first Sunday of September.
