"Les Vieilles Charrues" festival to hit New York City in October

Published on September 23, 2016
"Les Vieilles Charrues," France’s biggest festival, will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a one-day spin-off in New York City on October 1, 2016.

The festival started in 1992 with a small village fair in Brittany, France, gathering about 500 people and including not only music but also local outdoor games. The festival doubled in size every year and soon became a key instrument to revive central Brittany.

Today, "Les Vieilles Charrues" has become a destination festival, attracting 250,000 attendees, a lineup of 60 artists every year, and is supported by 6,000 volunteers.

On October 1, 2016, the "Vieilles Charrues" team, in collaboration with the Association of Bretons in NYC, will take on a new challenge: a special one-day event to celebrate the 25th anniversary edition of the festival in Central Park, New York.
