Carnival

Carnival is for everyone

Blois carnival, which began in 1993, has become one of the city's unmissable festive happenings!

Carnival 2010Enlarge the pictureIn March every year, Blois celebrates carnivals from all over the world, inviting a large number of artistes who parade through the streets, sharing the carnival spirit with all!

International, national or local professional companies put their talent at the service of street theatre, alongside local associations and volunteers. A joyful, lively procession winds through the streets of the city, from Place du Château to Place de la République, hailed by a brass band at the beginning and end, while the Halle aux Grains parvis offers an amazing final show every year.

A boisterous popular entertainment to chase away the winter blues! So dress up, paint your face and be there!

Take part in the workshops to prepare for the carnival!

To prepare the parade and give everyone a chance to express their creativity, workshops are set up all year round in different venues (Nicolas Peskine Theatre, Espace citoyenneté, District centres, Education Department…).

Don't hesitate to enquire if you would like to get involved!
