PETITE-VALLÉE SONG FESTIVAL
The Village en chanson de Petite-Vallée is a non-profit organization that runs the Petite-Vallée Song Festival along with a song camp and the Théâtre de la Vieille Forge.
The Petite-Vallée Song Festival is first and foremost a week of training for 12 up-and-coming artists with professional artists who are also skilled teachers. Over the last few years, the organizers of the Petite-Vallée Song Festival have made every effort to foster the exchange of ideas among emerging singers and songwriters. During the festival, music lovers are invited to afternoon and evening shows featuring both renowned and up-and-coming performers.
The festival will celebrate its 40th anniversary from July 28 to August 5, 2023. Several packages and passports will be available once the full schedule of events is announced.
