Vic-Fezensac is renowned for the bullfights that take place throughout the weekend of Pentecost. On that occasion tens of thousands of people gather all night long over the weekend in the tiny streets of the city. It is the first big "feria" of the year in Southwestern France. Small bodegas crowded with people are open until the morning comes, "bandas" (bands of popular Basque or Gascon music) goes on the streets.
At the end of July the Tempo Latino salsa festival takes place. Night markets ("marchés de nuit") are also held in summer.
