“Les Fêtes maritimes de Brest”

You probably know Brest for its incredible Musée National de la Marine, housed in the town’s old medieval castle, or for its port. But did you know that since the 1980s, the port and streets of Brest have been invaded by a spectacular event? The Fêtes de la mer celebrates ships, sailors and maritime stories!

It’s a not-to-be-missed event that attracted more than 700,000 visitors in 2012 and 2016. Eight years on, Brest is getting ready to light up once again. From 12 to 17 July, more than 7 kilometres of quayside will come alive with dancing, singing and stalls to provide a week of festivities.

What about the Lapérouse Albi-France association?

On Monday 15 July at 10.30am, Stéphane Buord, Scientific Director of International Activities at the Conservatoire botanique de Brest, will be giving a talk for the Lapérouse Albi-France association on “The Compass and botanical science: the Noah’s Ark of our time”. We look forward to seeing you there! See you on the “Hydroograph” ship!
