Chartres Events Calendars

Chartres annual festival and event guide book is actually available in Chartres tourist office, the lobby of your hotel or bed and breakfast – it’s free!

It as a small tourist guide book that you could bring everywhere, consists of accommodation and restaurant lists, places to visit and so fort in five languages - french, german, italian, spanish and portuguese.

How about occasional events? Some of occasional Chartres events might not be listed on this tourist guide book. Not to mention some specific events from museums or theater, a national or international sport events and some kids attractions. They usually printed on separated book guide, flyers, presented on billboard or simply by word of mouth.

Can you imagine that at the end of your journeys in Chartres, you will have a bunch of flyer collections as souvenirs?

For the sake of simplicity, I gather the major agenda of festivals and events from several sources in events calendars, so you could easily find interesting information about events or festivals you wish to see on the day you come in Chartres, just in one place.
