With its hundreds of miles of beautiful beaches, historical places, and excellent food and drink, it’s no wonder that Brittany is considered one of the best places to spend your summer holiday.
The summer months are always an exciting time, and this summer is going to be as excellent as ever.
As a company that specialises in holiday rentals in Brittany, we’re clued-up on all the events that happen throughout the year. Read on for information about some of the events that we think are worth a visit this summer.
Festival of Brittany (21st-25th May)
Taking place over four whole days, the Festival of Brittany is one of the biggest festivals to take place.
It’s considered a time to celebrate Breton culture, with over 300 events taking place to showcase some of their oldest and newest traditions.
There are plenty of different activities taking place – concerts, exhibitions, workshops, markets, and dances. Meaning there’s something for everyone!
Festival de Cornouaille (21st – 26th July)
This annual festival takes place in the city of Quimper, which is located in the south-west of Brittany.
It’s been taking place since 1923, and is considered to be one of the biggest and most popular cultural events. It has around 180 shows and concerts taking place, in both the day and evening.
Breton’s culture is celebrated in a stunning showcase of diversity and richness. It’s one not to be missed!
Festival Interceltique de Lorient (7th -16th August)
This festival has been taking place since 1971 and now sees around 700,000 people from around the world come to Brittany every year.
It takes place to celebrate Celtic culture, with Celtic music being a huge feature – bagpipes especially!
