Don't miss Concarneau in August!

There's never a dull moment in Concarneau in summer! Festivals, exhibitions, concerts... the town comes alive with a host of events. Here's a selection!

Festival des Filets Bleus The Festival of Blue Netsa not-to-be-missed event!

This is one of Brittany's major summer festivals. Created in 1905, it brings together the local population and holidaymakers for a few days of fun! As every year, the Queen of the Filets Bleus will be crowned and will represent Concarneau all year round. This major popular event offers a programme based on Breton culture. Conferences, tours, demonstrations... maritime and Breton culture will be in the spotlight over the next few days. Don't miss the impressive Grande Parade, featuring hundreds of musicians and dancers.

Free concerts are on offer on the Quai Carnot, with this year's line-up including the likes of San Severino, Chico et les Gypsies and festival locals Fleuves, for a festnoz into the night!
