Discover Beauregard et Cidre et Dragons Festivals

During your stay at camping les Peupliers in Merville-Franceville, you can not miss two festivals that sound like cultural institutions of Calvados, Beauregard and Cidre et Dragons.

Cidre et Dragons Festival

The festival is a magical moment. You are no longer in Merville-Franceville but, for a weekend, in the fabulous city of Merravilla, home of all imaginations. Every year, almost 50,000 people flock to meet the artists. We are back to ancient times in a mixture of the Middle Ages and phantasmagoric countries. Troubadours and minstrels compete with visitors for applause with goblins and trolls. Vikings are even seen. Fans of the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit will be delighted. But beware, the world of Merravilla is alive and well and in its streets is crammed the punches of the most radical of the three clans who fight for magical powers. Brasiards, Venguins and Misty, with recognizable colors.

Created in 2006, the party takes place every year on the third weekend of September and literally invades the city of Merville-Franceville. You will enjoy art exhibitions, street theatre performances, a medieval market and many other events. But it is above all the incredible atmosphere that reigns in the city, the disguised characters and the permanent happening that make the festival a place where it is good to meet with family and friends. A concert is held on Saturday night.

Beauregard Festival in Hérouville Saint Clair

Since 2009, every year at the beginning of July, thousands of music lovers flock to the Beauregard Festival. The event takes its name from the Château de Beauregard, whose 23-hectare park serves as a setting for the event. The Castle is located in Hérouville Saint Clair, south of Caen, not far from camping les Peupliers.

The  concert is meant to be eclectic. Also all styles of music mix on the two stages arranged in the park of the castle and equipped with giant screens. During four days, you will be able to enjoy the novelties of rap artists or electro music but also the arrival of stars of the 80s and 90s. The French song is also in the spotlight. To give you an idea of the quality of the singers and bands who performed at the Beauregard festival, we can quote Bernard Lavilliers, Clara Luciani, Rome Elvis, Therapie Taxi or Angèle. It is the rendezvous of the pop, rock, rap and alternative scene of the summer in the Caen region. In recent years, the festival has focused on sustainable development. Everything is organized for the comfort of festival-goers and respect for nature, selective sorting, organic shops and restaurants, shuttles to get to and from the festival….
