Brittany is a land of festivals. There are also many in Vitré all year long : Don Jigi Fest, cabaret Jazz, Danse Danse Danse, Les Sportiviales……and also the artistic programme of the Centre Culturel Jacques Duhamel.
Two mains events :
This street show is organised by the association ‘Rue des Arts’. You can see plays, circus, listen to songs….proposed by Vitré Communauté in different towns and villages in mid June and in Moulins the last week-end of June. The village becomes then a place of festivities, discoveries and friendship.
This Brass band Festival takes place on ‘The place du château’ in Vitré every year. With more than 20 concerts, the programme is festive and eclectic : from funk to rock music and hip hop or music from the Balkans and Africa. This festival takes place the last week-end of August.
Between these two festivals, you can enjoy other events :
- ‘Les Jeudis de l’été’ : market of local producers and tale walks
- ‘Les Vendredis en scène’ : concerts and plays
- ‘Les Poteries Samedi’ : concerts at the beginning of the evening on terraces of restaurants and pubs
