The 2019 edition: Guided by Leonardo da Vinci

Guided by the visionary regard of Leonardo da Vinci, the 13th edition will embark you on the highways and byways of the arts and cultures of the world without forgetting and the natural and historic heritage and the serene art of living characterizing the Loire valley.

More than 300 rendezvous, whatever your tastes and preferences, for concerts, theater, dance, cinema, story-telling, plastic arts, strolls, workshops and unusual visits.

Once again, the “Creusille” port will come alive with its convivial Guinguette (riverside café) and its Escales découvertes (discovery stopovers). A number of talented artists on the new musical scene will accompany you during summertime, one highlight being the Three cafés gourmands (13 July).

The 500th anniversary of the Renaissance will be celebrated throughout our land with programming spanning several festivals: Jazz’in Cheverny, Festival de Chambord, La Clé des Portes (the door key), l’Echo du Caquetoire (original shows, some of them under a canopy), Va jouer dehors (go play outside) and Vienne en Goguette (a “singaround”).
