From December 26th to January 5th, come and immerse yourself in a magical world.
Step inside a dreamlike world and witness wonders
During the festival period, skilled practitioners of a whole host of performance arts, including storytellers, mimes, magicians and other circus and fairground disciplines will entertain you in an enchanting place that hosts an amazing collection of funfair rides and other artefacts. Jugglers, tightrope walkers, puppeteers, aerial dancers, musicians and other performers will transport you into a world where dreams and illusions are born of technological, digital, visual and auditory mastery. The Festival du Merveilleux is an opportunity to take a trip back in time to experience the magic of yesteryear.
