The Festival of Avignon
Each year in the surroundings of the old city, the famous Avignon Festival of Dramatic Art takes place. For this exceptional summer event, the city's open spaces are transformed into performance areas and Avignon itself becomes a theatre!
The festival programme: more than 60 contemporary shows for approximately 300 artistic representations in dance, theatre, music or graphic arts. Also included are lectures, exhibitions, films and even debates. In short, it's a rich cultural journey of discovery!
Alongside, discover the "Off" Festival private initiative, in which you can find plays of all styles in a hundred different locations.
