Vendome Guitar Festival

vendome guitar fest
Vendôme (41 Loir et Cher, Centre) is a pleasant town on the River Loir (no “e”) north west of Blois (on the River Loire with an “e”), but it nevertheless hosts a major international Guitar Fesitval every year 19-26 July 2014.  This seems to happen a lot in France whereby small provincial towns transform themselves into a the centre of some international cultural event – Vendome Guitar Festival  (Festival Internationale d Guitare de Vendôme)
Major artists from Spain, South America, New Zealand, Italy, Mexico and Afghanistan head for this town of 18,000 people. Similarly Marciac in Gers (32 Midi-Pyrenees) hosts a major international Jazz festival every August – all a reflection of the fact that France takes art and culture very seriously, even in the provinces which can otherwise seem rather quiet and unexciting.
