The big eventsEVERY YEAR IN THE COËVRONS
In the Coëvrons, we love traditions! Every year, great events punctuate the lives of the inhabitants who are always happy to welcome more visitors. Participate in the upcoming events alongside the Coëvrons people and their warm welcome!
LES NUITS DE LA MAYENNE
Do you love theatre? Heritage? Do you love exploring secret places? The search is over, Les Nuits de la Mayenne is perfect for you!
Since 1973, half-way between July and August, this travelling theatre festival offers theatre pieces and reinterpretations from the repertory, promoting heritage through live performances. So you can rediscover the castle of Sainte-Suzanne, in the middle of the night, to the sound of crickets, under the colourful spotlights that highlight its architectural details. Make sure you're there for the 45th edition, for summer 2018!
Le Festival des Arts sacrés
Choose an ancient place, steeped in spirituality, and put together a program of songs and music that were played there several centuries ago! This was what Evron town council decided to do in 2003, for the 1st edition of the Festival of Sacred Arts. The basilica of Evron has now hosted 15 of these events when, in early July, it puts on concerts of sacred music, bringing to life the history of its centuries-old stones.
This is perfect for all lovers of heritage, music and singing, because here "singing is enjoyed twice over": the ancient place and the music.
Festival de la Viande
The land is also celebrated in the Coëvrons!
The Meat Festival has been held since 1966 at the beginning of September in Evron to honourproducers of quality beef and veal from the whole of France!
A real immersion in the midst of the competition animals, where lovers of fine food will find plenty to enjoy: lots of stands offer tastings of beef and other specialities round the clock and to more than 20,000 visitors.
What a great way to make beautiful memories!
