For over 40 years, the South of the Allier has allowed itself a unique cultural celebration.
The Festival of World Cultures gathers peoples of the world and 65,000 festival-goers in the town of Gannat – a 10-day journey around the world to discover other cultures.
No competition here, just the spirit of sharing and having fun in every corner of town!
A programme of many themed performances to choose from – dance and music groups from the five continents – will take you on a rollercoaster ride of colourful festivities. The Festival of World Cultures also offers dancing and singing workshops, exotic meals to surprise your taste buds, films and discussions, exhibitions to find out about people from other parts of our planet…
For one week every year, the whole town of Gannat vibrates and becomes the world’s festive capital. Activities and creative art and craft workshops (puppets, masks, weaving…) are organised for children.
