On Sunday, August 4th, 2013, and for the first time in the history of the Troglodytic Valley of Goupillières, we will celebrate "Goupil Day"

Still inhabiting the small Goupillières valley, the “goupil” (the archaic French word for “fox”) will leave its forest lair to attend the celebration.
This celebration, lasting from 10h to 19h
, will be a nod to the famous fox who gave its name to Goupillières. “Goupil”, and others of its genus, are known to be cunning, funny and joyful.
Louis-Marie will lead the guided tour of the troglodytic farms and underground refuge, all the while being wary of the “hen-thief” like a good peasant.
Could Amélie be in league with Goupil?
As she did with July’s “Little Farmers celebration”, she is dedicated to satisfy as many visitors, parents, grandparents and children with events, songs, and games.
How many children will leave the Goupillières with the small fox mask they have made, feeling just as shrewd, funny and joyful as the fox in its own Goupillières valley?
During the festivities, the "Troglodyte Gourmand" restaurant will offer on-the-spot traditional “tartines”, pancakes, drinks, ice-cream, and more
