More about the Festival
The Normandy Impressionist Festival reflects this regional cultural heritage and proudly displays its history by staging large exhibitions of the movement’s art. Masterpieces from around the world are brought together in the region. The festival also promotes contemporary interpretations of Impressionism by inviting French and foreign artists to produce new works on Impressionist themes.
The festival also presents important musical, theatrical, literary and festive events.
The distinctive characteristic of the Festival is that it is just as much a popular celebration, inviting all sections of the public to participate in the festivities organised by towns, associations and private individuals across the region during the summer period.
