Portugal will be the main theme of the Sange Festival 2024 at the Sully-sur-Loire castle in France. The three-day festival, that targets at least 35,000 visitors, will be held on September 6 - 8, 2024. Sully-sur-Loire, that is on the left bank of the river Loire, is well known for its medieval castle and is part of the historic trail of the Valley of the Kings with its famous castles.

 

 

What do Portugal and the Loire in France have in common?


Since Portugal and the Loire valley in France both have regions where hunting, tradition and fishing are beloved, and since there is a large Portuguese community in the Loiret, Portugal and the Loire have close ties. The goal of the Sange Festival is to perpetuate all these values ​​and everything that links the people to the rural world.

 

 

What is the Sange Festival?


The Sange Festival is a Harvest Festival where families meet for the harvest feast and visitors join in the celebrations. “A family spirit” is what Mathieu Teixeira, the president of the Sange committee, wants to highlight, and the Portuguese people are part of the French family in the Loiret region. Since Portugal will be the central theme of the next Sange Festival, three to four Portuguese folk groups will be invited for the occasion.

 

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the park of the Château de Sully-sur-Loire will be animated by hunters, trumpet blowers, equestrian shows, and hundreds of exhibitors for the Sange festival in France’s Loire valley.

 

The castle park consists of 41.5 hectares of forest that are both steeped in history and rich in biodiversity. Hidden in the forest, visitors will also be able to see a replica of the famous Lourdes cave, built in 1883 for the Countess of Sully. Strolling along the banks of the Sange river, that is a tributary of the river Loire, visitors will be able to discover the area of the Loire Valley covering 280 km, from Sully-sur-Loire in the Loiret to Chalonnes-sur-Loire in Anjou, that has been listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.

 

The highlights of the Sange Festival are the two concerts that take place on Friday and Saturday evenings, where Portuguese music will fill the air.
