What's On in Dordogne

Mediaeval festivals – Many towns and villages in the region hold their own in the summer, such asLanquais, Monpazier, Salignac-Evyvigues, Issigeac and Belves. They typically involve re-enactments, music, games and traditional local fare. Ask at the nearest tourist office to find out what’s on during your stay. 

Star-gazing in August – making wonderful memories couldn’t be simpler! Head to the Triangle Noir du Quercy (black triangle of Quercy) in the Causses du Quercy natural park to ooh and aah over shooting stars during the meteor shower period in August. The area has virtually no light pollution, making it ideal for observing the night sky.

Jazz Pourpre – Bergerac hosts a “Purple Jazz” festival in May, bringing jazz to the streets with a programme featuring a mix of free and paid events and concerts. 

Fête de la Musique – music abounds throughout France every year on 21st June, the night of the summer solstice. Musical acts spring up in streets and venues across the land. Book a table or pack a picnic and listen to whatever’s on offer.  

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. Pick a picturesque spot by the river for an evening packed with ambiance.
