The Embroiderers' Festival. Pont-l'Abbé. Brittany.

La Fête des Brodeuses à Pont-l’Abbé.

Pont-l’Abbé, situé au coeur du Pays Bigouden - renommé pour la qualité de ses broderies - organise depuis 60 ans la fête des Brodeuses.
Quatre journées durant, se succèdent défilés en costumes traditionnels, spectacles de danses, prestations de chanteurs, de Bagadoù et de rock bands, concours de luttes bretonnes...
De grandes tables sont dressées à l’ombre des feuillages. On y mange et on y boit tandis que sur scène se produisent chanteurs, musiciens et danseurs.
Dans cette ambiance très festive, sous la lumière de Cornouaille, c’est un peu comme si le monde de Gauguin rencontrait celui de Renoir.


The Embroiderers’ Festival. Pont-l'Abbé.

Pont-l'Abbé, situated in the heart of the Bigouden’s Land (West Brittany) - famous for the quality of its embroideries - organizes for 60 years the Embroiderers’ Festival.
During four days, parades in traditional costumes, spectacles of dances, performances of singers, Celtic Bands (Bagadoù) and rock bands, succeed everywhere in the little town.
Long tables are setted on in the shade of the foliages. There we eat and drink too while musicians, singers and dancers perform on the stage.
In this very festive atmosphere, under the light of Cornouaille, it is just like if the world of Gauguin met that of Renoir.
