With the summer, festivals spring up throughout the country: an ideal way to discover culture and friendship à la française. French cultural creations (films, plays, painting, etc.) are also a window on the country’s famous art of living.
For the French, the art of living is first and foremost the art of enjoying yourself. Any occasion is the right time to go out. Like, for example the national day, July 14th, when there are the traditional firemen’s balls. Earlier, in June, the Fête de la Musique scatters concerts about the streets. You can also discover the férias of the south-west of France, the Beaujolais Nouveau evenings and the Nuit Blanche: every reason is a good one for getting together and having fun.
