Two brass bands and waders
For three days, craftsmen and independent traders exhibit their products and offer various activities in the famous artery. First of all, two bands will perform at the opening and closing of the event : on Saturday, at 12:45 p.m., during the inauguration of the fair by the mayor of the Pink City, Jean-Luc Moudenc, you will discover the Pifada, a mobile fanfare of bamboo flutes and percussions which draws its repertoire from melodies and rhythms Brazilian and Occitan.
At the end of the fair, Monday at 5 p.m., the Maracatu Sardinhas Da Mata group will pay tribute to the chained slaves who yearned for freedom. Armed with drums, they broke their chains and took refuge in the Brazilian north. The maracatu is the fruit of this resistance.

No mayor of the Free Municipality this year
But the 2021 edition will be without the Mayor of the Free Commune of La Colombette, whose perimeter extends, in addition to the rue de la Colombette, from Gabriel-Péri to the rue d’Aubuisson, and to the Terre-Cabade cemetery. .
A project to better identify the neighborhood
After the death of Serge Terrazzonni in 2019, the latter has not yet been replaced. This is one of the projects for 2022, in addition to consolidating the identity of the Free Municipality, as indicated by François Scheerens, the secretary of the Association of traders and craftsmen of Saint-Aubin / Colombette:
“We are in the process of doing everything to be able to re-elect a mayor from 2022. For the rest, our ambition is to rehabilitate the notion of Free Municipality. It is not well identified today and our task is to better delimit it and materialize it with signs, markings on the ground, revegetation … We are going to propose a project in this direction to the municipality “.
In the meantime, the Colombette will be able to party after the disenchanted parenthesis of the Covid and the inhabitants and traders, find one of the greatest post-war Toulouse traditions.
