Where to celebrate La Chandeleur – aka get your crêpe fix – today

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Today is La Chandeleur, which is the day on which you are encouraged to eat crêpes. We tell you where you can eat crêpes around Australia.




La Chandeleur is always celebrated on 2 February, being 40 days after Christmas. The name comes from the latin “festa candelarum”, which means “fete des chandelles”. For Christians and Catholics, it represents the day on which Baby Jesus was presented at the temple.

But today, even if the majority of French people are non-religious, they still eat crêpes for La Chandeleur.



Even though the majority of crêperies in Australia don’t do anything special for La Chandeleur, you can still eat crêpes at them today.
