Artforms of all types


Since the arrival of the popes and their court during the 14th century, the city has always been an important artistic center.  

In 1947 with the creation of the Theatre Festival by Jean Vilar, it also became one of the world’s greatest theatrical meeting places. 


European City of Culture in 2000, Avignon vibrates to the rhythm of cultural events :  opera, permanent theatres, societies, clubs that offer musical, theatrical or dance performances all the year round.

Leading events over the seasons :  Cheval Passion in January, the “Hivernales de la Danse” (contemporary dance festival) in February, Alterarosa in the Palais des Papes in May…and of course,, the summer exhibitions in the palais des papes!
