Carillon Historical Park’s Fleurs de Fête was cancelled in 2020 and 2021, but in 2022 it is scheduled to be back and better than ever.

The annual wine-themed event is typically a huge draw with hundreds of people converging on outdoor tents to sample from more than 400 wines and a smattering of beers while sampling specialty dishes being served up by local caterers and restaurants.
