Photographic walks in Daoulas
Each year, the photo exhibition leaves the walls of the Abbey and links up with a themed photographic trail, set up in the Abbey gardens and on the walls of the town of Daoulas. A great way to extend your visit and discover the charm of the little town, its stones and its heritage!
Winter Night in Landerneau
Now in its sixth year, this enchanting winter event has quickly won over a wide audience. For four weeks in December, Nuit d'Hiver enchanted the heart of Landerneau with video scenography and lighting. As night falls, locals and visitors alike gather on the banks of the Elorn River, on the inhabited bridge, in Place St-Thomas and in the pedestrian streets, to admire the metamorphosis of the town and enjoy a colorful, poetic stroll.
Street art shows, the Christmas market and Santa's little train complete the program of a not-to-be-missed event for the festive season.
A touch of madness
Carnival of the Starry Moon
The tradition of carnivals in Landerneau goes back a long way! The cheerful team of volunteers who took up the torch in 2012 succeeded in getting the 22 communes of the region on board to create the Carnaval de la Lune étoilée. This festive and popular event takes place every two years in spring, and grows richer with each edition.
After four years without a carnival, the 2022 edition was a resounding success, with large crowds flocking to the Sunday parade. The children's carnival on Friday is a must-see event that kids love!
In 2023, the Smurfs return to Landerneau! Join us in March to break the world record for the largest Smurf gathering for a second time and enter the Guinness Book of Records.
Festival Soñj, the new visual arts event
A new addition to the cultural program of the Landerneau Daoulas region, the soñj festival was held for the 1st time in May 2022, spread over 8 communes.
Other events will be scheduled to bring contemporary art to the region's heritage sites.
See you in May 2024 for the second edition!
Fête de la musique in winter
Rives de Nuits
Since 2008, the Rives de Nuits event in Brittany has been inviting the public to three nights of music and celebration. From Thursday to Saturday, the public can enjoy the cafés (and other unusual venues) with increasingly surprising proposals.
The "Fête de la musique en hiver" is a three-day journey through rock, blues, pop, soul, jazz, chanson française and electro.
Three evenings in a row for three times as much fun, in an electric, surprising, family-friendly and festive atmosphere in the Landerneau Daoulas area.
See you in January 2024!
Into the water!
Au Fil de l'Eau
Au Fil de l'Eau is the essential summer nautical event in the Landerneau-Daoulas region!
