During these key moments of the year, the region of Angers throbs with life. You’ll find events of all kinds, from the cultural to the sporting, as well as gastronomic and artistic events, all with a festive atmosphere.

 

All throughout the year, the châteaux and heritage sites of Anjou become the stage for contemporary arts events, outdoor performances, circus shows and more. Angers’ heritage may be a thousand years old, yet it lends itself perfectly to a modern and original programme of events and festivals. 
Popular annual events like the Festival d’Anjou, Premiers Plans, Les Montgolfiades, Les Accroche-Coeurs and the Biennale des Grands Fleuves du Monde are today local institutions and have long attracted visitors from well beyond the Angers region.

Music Maestro! Angers is lucky enough to welcome international and national performers every year through an eclectic range of music events promoting the local and national scene. Levitation France, the Modern Festival, Trélazé Festival, Printemps des Orgues, or Tempo Rives, which holds special events for families, will rhythm your summer evenings, while cultural venues like Le Chabada or Le Quai offer music all year round.

On the nature side, the Fête du Vélo is a fun, family event that encourages people to explore beautiful natural sites by bike. 

If you’re a food lover, Food’Angers is a must in your diary. Centred on Loire wines and Angevin food specialities, a mouth-watering time is to be had. And it’s not the only event where you can discover Anjou’s rich variety of wines – Vignes Vins Randos, Tempo Vignes, and Angers’ summer tasting evenings all have many little gems for you to discover!

With this festive programme of events designed in the joyful Angevin spirit, you’re sure to have a fantastic time.
