Historical Festival and "Fêtes d'Arvor" in Vannes
Two summer meetings in Vannes around Brittany's history and culture.
In the middle of July, the city of the Venetians relives a period of its past with the Historical Festivals. Hundreds of participants, historical reconstructions, street shows, costumed processions enliven the streets and ramparts of old medieval Vannes.
Around the 15th August, the Fêtes d'Arvor festival celebrates Breton tradition through music, songs and dances.
On the menu : folk groups, fest-noz (evening Breton music festival), parades in Breton costumes, fireworks on the ramparts as well as the election of the Queen of Arvor and her runners-up.
