FAIR VIVRE CÔTÉ SUD 2021
For more than 20 years, Maisons Côté Sud magazine has been taking place at the Vivre Côté Sud fair, which takes place every year in Aix-en-Provence, in this green space, the Jourdan Park.
Due to the health crisis, the 2021 edition will not take place and will be postponed to 2022.
Thus, next year, it will offer as in previous years, the seven themes where the 260 exhibitors and 28,000 visitors find their happiness: Talents, Decorations, Creators, Flavors, Garden, Bazaar and Furnishing.
During these four days of travel, you will discover a festive atmosphere gathering decoration enthusiasts who will enjoy regional products, quality materials, new trends of the moment, varying gustatory, tactile and visual pleasure.
If the theme remains unchanged from the one initially planned last year, it goes without saying that 365 days have passed and our daily actions suggest that we are more sensitive to the preservation of the environment where optimism and better future will be combined.
The theme “Green-tomorrow” wants to echo in the minds of everyone. Mentalities are changing, an awareness of the preservation of our planet appears and the idea of a more responsible future is created.
Let’s act to make tomorrow’s world a better place. Let’s preserve our wealth and pass it on to future generations who will not hesitate to inspire the next ones. Craftsmen, manufacturers, traders, consumers, creators … must consider the human in their respect and work of the most beautiful materials and move more towards an ethical and committed production.
Our natural heritage warns us, we respond with will and tenacity. From upcycling to recycling, from water saving to greening our travels, from valuing seasonal products to defending the fauna and flora… let’s be actors of our life.
The Salon Vivre Côté Sud showcases the art of living in the South, where local know-how, discoveries and passion come together in a peaceful and sustainable climate. In this spirit, the Vivre Côté Sud show will highlight this year’s scenographies, which will offer an open and oxygenated vision of tomorrow’s garden around responsible practices and experiences.
