SUMMER 2015 NIGHT PROGRAMME
Organised by Pays d’Arnay UCIA
Every Thursday evening in July and August for the last 15 years, the town lights up and the alleys in the historical city centre take on a festive spirit: shops are open until 11 p.m., a night market featuring artisans and exhibitors from the entire region is organised in the streets, and several food stands are present.
And to liven it all up, music groups perform in every square. The atmosphere is festive and friendly; it’s the not-to-miss summer event in Arnay-le-Duc. The notoriety of these ”Summer Nights” has spread throughout the entire region over the years meaning some 3000 people gather each Thursday evening to walk around the streets and have a good time!
New for this year:
– The theme for 2015 is: ” Art in all of its States “… thus, art will be everywhere and very different display cases will be filled with works of art, sculptures, photographs, etc….to please everyone’s eyes!
– An area dedicated to children is planned for the Saint-Honoré car park: games and food are on the programme… Fun for both the young and not so young!
Booking a table to eat under the marquee the week before the event at the telephone number indicated is highly recommended.
