Activity planning excitement

A wonderful ambience at any time of year

The crucible of French theatre, cradle of the realist novel, European capital of poetry... For almost a millennium, Arras has been cultivating the art of cultural encounters and popular festivities, each embellishing the town’s most beautiful settings in their own unique way. From the Jardin des Boves, blooming underground from early spring, to the Christmas village that takes over the Grand'Place in December, not a month goes by without a festival (Main Square Festival, Arras Film festival, Les Inouïes, Faites de la chanson to name but a few), a traditional celebration, a historical reconstruction or a literary get-together attracting tens of thousands of visitors, all captivated by the town’s friendly atmosphere.
