Festival - Notre Provence Group

The festival is imagined as a bright holiday, the versatile talent show with a mix of theatre, music, pop, circus, cinema art. Often the “festival” as the event itself is identified with the “street fair” or “national holiday”. In general, the festivals are held in a variety of formats - open or closed premises, in the open air, in the park, in a museum and other places. Especially their diversity is shown in the directions and topics: cinematic, theatrical, musical, literary, scientific, ballet, literary, culinary, historical, dance, religious, children's festivals and many others.

Such solemn assemblies often served for getting new experiences, information related to the cultural and ethnic themes. It was widespread to celebrate the time of the crop harvesting, so the emergence of the festival as a special events is tied to religion and folklore.
 
In ancient Greece and Rome festivals were presented in the form of community meetings to discuss the political and social processes. The end of the war, the victory over the enemy, that is historically significant events also gave ground for the development of festivals.

The popularity of mass celebration in the way that we imagine now can be compared to dance entertainments with background music that received wide popularity in Great Britain of the XVII century. Already at the beginning of XX century the international festivals were organized in the world under different slogans: “For peace and friendship,” “Against the war.”
 
France has a fairly large list of festivals which are held annually in different regions and months. Folk festivals, solemn gala-events, public holidays are closely intertwined and their celebration became a real national tradition for every Frenchman and a great leisure time for tourists.
 
Festivals in France are bright celebrations that make the country lively, inspiring new experiences and surprise by the scale of their organization. The greatest number of events falls on the summer.

  • The Avignon Equestrian Festival – the equestrian sports competitions where you can see the best thoroughbred horses are held annually;
