When to go to Lot-et-Garonne? Lot-et-Garonne is not a very touristic department, also to answer the question "When to leave?", the answer is "All year round", because there is no really a better period, winter being of course less favourable. As everywhere, summer is the preferred time to enjoy outdoor activities, but fall is often mild and the colours of nature are superb. It is ideal for hiking just like spring. Very few establishments close out of season and prices do not vary significantly between periods. Festivals are held during the high season, some of which are linked to gourmet products from Lot-et-Garonne, such as the Penne-d'Agenais tourtière festival on the second Sunday in July. Festivino, which takes place on the last weekend of July, is a great popular festival organised by the Marmandais' winegrowers. On the last weekend of August, the Grand Pruneau show in Agen takes place. Tons of plums pass in the form of prunes in a huge oven in Wilson Square and everyone gets some for free. At the same time, there are also large free concerts. As for music, Garorock hosts Marmande at the end of June and beginning of July, just like Les Nuits lyriques in August. To laugh, you have to go to the end of June-early July to the Festival du Rire in Villeneuve-sur-Lot or the first Sunday in August to the Festival des Menteurs in Moncrabeau. Sportspeople, take your sneakers for the Agenaises strides on the second Sunday in September. Lot-et-Garonne has a specificity: they are the country storytellers. Through their passion, they tell the story of their village and their country, which they introduce in a different way by going off the beaten track.
