Vic-Fezensac is the a communes and the seat of a canton in the Gers department in southwestern France.

Vic-Fezensac is renowned for the bullfights that take place throughout the Pentecost weekend.

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 salsa festival takes place. Night markets ("marchés de nuit") are also held in summer.
