Heritage Days in Berry, our selection:

03/09/2018

The European Heritage Days are celebrating their 35th anniversary this year on September 15 & 16, 2018!

The opportunity for you to discover the history of these days, scheduled every year on the third weekend of September. This day is of origin ... French!

It was created under the leadership of Jack Lang in 1984, at the time Minister of Culture. This day was so successful that the minister proposed to extend it to the European level. Today, about 50 states organize this day each year. This year the theme will be around the "art of sharing".
