What festivals should you not miss during your vacation in Reunion?

At Latitude 21 in Saint-Gilles-Les-Bains, we know that your vacation should be illuminated with adventure and cultural discoveries.

After all, you don’t come to the island just to visit the cirques and lava tubes, as impressive as they are.

You also come here to discover all the festivals in Reunion! Because in addition to being a jewel in terms of natural splendors, Reunion is also a festive island full of life.

This is why at Latitude 21, your luxury hotel in Saint-Gilles-les-Bains , we take you to discover the coolest festivals in Reunion.

Get ready, things are going to rock on the island!


The Liberté Métisse festival to celebrate diversity


The first festival in Reunion not to be missed is Liberté Métisse.

It’s a party, and not just any party!

In December, the Etang-Salé seafront is transformed into an enormous open-air dancefloor .

Liberté Métisse celebrates the abolition of slavery with contagious energy. Music, dances, workshops for young and old, and of course, a buffet to delight your taste buds. We go there to vibrate to the rhythm of diversity and have a drink of fraternity, and in our more egalitarian times.


The unmissable Safiko Musik festival


If you only do one festival in Reunion, this must be it! Every year in June, Saint-Pierre lets loose completely.

For 3 days, music from all over the world meets on a dream beach. Reggae, rock , electro , sega

Sakifo means “ what is needed ” in Creole, and believe us, they deliver. Bring your hat and your best hip swing, it’s going to heat up!

Divapali, the festival of Lights


November lights up in Saint-André. Dipavali (or Diwali) is like an early Christmas but with thousands of lights and colors in your eyes.

Parades, traditional Indian dances, and a night market where you can test your bargaining skills. It’s beautiful, it’s festive, and it smells of curry and spices !


The Grand Raid, for warriors


Be careful, this is serious! Also called the “ Diagonale des Fous ”, this running festival is not for small players.

But don’t worry: you don’t have to run to enjoy this festival in Reunion.

If you’re more into mojitos on the beach, come just for the vibe, because these runners are machines. In October, everyone is outside cheering them on. Take your horn, and come experience the adventure… from afar!

The Film Festival


For movie buffs , it’s the jackpot! In November , Saint-Denis rolls out the red carpet for local and international films.

It’s an opportunity to see films that you won’t find on Netflix and to meet directors in flip-flops. Workshops, debates, and of course unlimited popcorn.


Some tips for festivals in Reunion


The hardest part about festivals in Reunion is choosing. And above all, to anticipate sufficiently to avoid unforeseen events (or the unavailability of tickets ).

The Latitude 21 gives you some tips for preparing for the festival season:

  • Plan now: these festivals are popular and Saint-Gilles-Les-Bains fills up quickly. Book your room at Latitude 21 to be sure you don’t miss anything.
  • Soak up the atmosphere: let yourself go, talk to the locals, taste everything within reach, and above all, have fun. That’s the Reunion spirit!
  • Prepare for the weather: It may be hot, it may rain, but the show always goes on. Take sunscreen and a small k-way, just in case.

There you go, you are now ready.
