Limoges is a host to many fairs. The oldest one, the Saint-Loup Fair, was founded in 1525 and is held on the last weekend of May. The Fair of the Innocent Saints was founded in 1566 by edict of Charles IX and takes place each year in the city’s streets at the end of December. The Limoges Exhibition-Fair is organised every May during the week of the Ascension, and an old book market is held on the first Wednesday of each month at Republic Square.
The verb “limoger” in French means to dismiss someone from office. This comes from WWI when the Marshal Joffre put many officers under house arrest in the city of Limoges.
