The fest-noz is one of the most famous festivals in Brittany and has even been listed as a Cultural Heritage Site since 2012. The fest-noz is the Breton word for “night festival”, as opposed to the fest-deiz “day festival”. We take every opportunity to dance and sing in moments of great conviviality, to celebrate great events such as pardons, weddings… in one word, to enjoy life.
The main pardons and festivals near Bénodet:
The pardons of St Anne (last Sunday in July), St Guénolé (1 Sunday in August), Kerbader (3rd Sunday in August), or Glénan (1st Sunday in September) are an opportunity to immerse yourself in an authentic and original culture.
Rock, folk, literary or film festivals… you will be surprised by the diversity of the great Breton events that take place in the region.
Whether they are large or small, indoor or outdoor, during the day or at night, year-round or seasonal, there are many markets in South of Finistère. On the stalls you will find the treasures of Brittany: local products, organic products, delicatessen, crafts, clothing… The market is an incredible place for exchanges, ideal to discover our region, its culture and its inhabitants! Take your time, browse amongst the stalls and discover the Breton culture, taste the good local products, buy your holiday souvenirs and gifts for friends… Just enjoy yourself!
