Events Of the Lorient area
A stiff breeze, carrying energy and enthusiasm, blows along the boulevards, up the quays and the bay of Lorient that warmly hosts some of the major sporting events of the year.
When the effervescence of the festivals gets hold in the streets, takes over the squares, mixing up cultures and lighting up the stages, the whole Lorient area vibrates to the rhythm of the party. Here, there is always something happening.
- Festival Interceltique
- Major sailing races

- The festivals
In Brittany, fest noz (a night party) is a party where the inhabitants come to dance. Dancing is collective, giving the part a convivial and festive nature. You too can slip into the dance!
Since the 1970’s, festoù-noz have seen a considerable revival. Whereas before the dance was mainly rhythmed by a duet of voices, today traditional music accompanies the singers.
Numerous festoù-noz are organised throughout the year in the various towns and villages around Lorient.
