It is the 17th edition of the large boules festival that annually takes southern France to Rålambshovsparken in Stockholm. And it’s not just boules tournaments and competitions that are on the program, but also live music, DJs and French street food.

There will be a sea of balls, fellowship and love here in Rålambshovsparken in July. A bit like going on a mini-vacation to the South of France. Though this airplane ticket costs just like a bus ticket, said Robin Johansson boule geek on Boulebar.

La Majonnaisen will this year be visited by the Belgian champions Michel Van Campenhout, Dede Lozano and Claudy Weibel. Along with many international team and Sweden’s best players. Despite this is the boule festival’s most important message that everyone can play boules. And there are competitions for beginners and pros alike.

Boule for us is all about community and a mixed bunch participants with both beginners and more experienced teams player creates a nice dynamic. It should be on bloodless seriously as we say, says Robin Johansson.

In 1995 was the first edition of La Majonnaise and the festival is inspired by the classic French La Marseillaise. A great contest organized in boulens hometown Marseille, which each year attracts over 10,000 boules players from all over the world. Boulebar with three boule restaurants in Stockholm is the organizer and main partners for this year’s La Majonnaise in Rålambshovsparken.
