What's On in Brittany

Music

With its Celtic heritage, art, music and celebration is an inherent part of Brittany’s culture and there’s always something happening. Fest Noz (which means night party) events happen all over the region at various times.traditional-dances-of-Brittany

 

 

The Inter-Celtique festival in Lorient takes place in early August and is the biggest Celtic festival in the world. Over half a million people flock to the area for ten days of singing, dancing and general merriment.Fest-noz et Bagad

Sailing

The legendary Route du Rhum sailing race leaves from Brittany every four years, with accomplished skippers setting out from Saint-Malo and embark on a solo transatlantic crossing to Guadeloupe. On a smaller but more regular scale, the Solo Concarneau is another single-handed race that begins and ends in Brittany, setting off from Concarneau and arriving in Les Sables d’Olonnes.Race-start-at-Port-Ru-in-Douarnenez

 

 

Local

The Pont Aven flower festival takes place on the first Sunday in August. Decorated floats and horse-drawn carriages parade through the town for a day of festivities that finishes up with a Fest Noz celebration when the sun goes down.

Firework displays

One thing the French do well is fireworks. Towns and villages all over France hold firework displays on 14th July, for Bastille Day, and/or 15th August for the holy day of the Assumption. Take a picnic and get to the beach early for an evening packed with ambiance.
