Cornouaille Festival

L'élection de la Reine de Cornouaille lors du Festival de Cornouaille

For six days, in high summer, Le Cornouaille gives Quimper a festive  ambience  with the sounds, colours and dances of Brittany and other world cultures. Nearly 1000 volunteers help each year with the organisation of 180 concerts, performances  and activities combining tradition, current music, sharing and social interaction.

Singing, dancing, music, concerts and exhibitions make up  this festival which is at the heart of a town and a culture.

From 1923, year of its creation by Louis le Bourhis, until now, the festival has become a symbol : its history and its evolution are tied to those of Brittany and the Breton people. Third-ranked festival in Brittany in attendance numbers, it’s the biggest Breton cultural rendez-vous.
