Peintres dans le Bocage

What is it ?


First it's an outdoor painting contest for adults. But also a concert, an exhibiton, a book fair and lots of activities for children.


During those two days the village that welcomes the event comes to life with an intense artistic activity.

Painters install their easels on the streets, at the water's edge, in the fields, wherever they will find inspiration.

A festive, family and artistic week end.

And it's free!
