Cœur Estival

The former Savestival festival, which has been held in the Savès since 2012, is being relocated to the Cœur de Garonne area in 2018 and has become Cœur Estival. These cultural events will punctuate the region throughout the summer with a programme of daytime entertainment and evening concerts.

Coordinated by the Coeur de Garonne Community of Communes and co-organised by the Maison de la Terre and the Intercommunal Tourist Office, these events are designed to be festive occasions for the public, guest artists and local associations to get together.

Journées européennes du patrimoine

Journées Européennes du Patrimoine​

Every September

Created in 1984 by the Ministry of Culture, the European Heritage Days take place every year on the third weekend in September.

Each year, a national theme is chosen to highlight an original or innovative aspect of our heritage, providing an opportunity for new openings and remarkable events (guided tours, demonstrations of skills, concerts, theatrical performances, themed tours). It helps to bring together local initiatives around this event and to structure communication.

The European Heritage Days are organised by the Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication / Direction générale des patrimoines and implemented in each region by the Directions Régionales des Affaires Culturelles.
Under the patronage of the Council of Europe and the European Commission, they benefit from the commitment of the Chief Architects of Historic Monuments, the Institut National de Recherches Archéologiques Préventives and the Villes et Pays d’Art et d’Histoire network.

Festival AgitaTerre

Festival AgitaTerre

In 2014, the AgitaTerre festival was held in the village square of Poucharramet to celebrate the 10th anniversary of 3PA, an association dedicated to the ecological transition. The aim was to bring together friendly structures and partners who are integrating the ecological transition into their practices. This first edition was a success, embodying a day of popular, festive and convivial ecology centred on local and concrete solutions.

In 2023, the festival will reach its 10th edition, marking the significant evolution of the 3PA association, from a period of ‘crossing the desert’ to a major player in the ecological and solidarity-based transition. At the same time, the environmental context has evolved, with questions of ecological transition occupying a central place in debates and awareness. An increasingly committed young population, ongoing political action, heightened awareness and growing expectations are all signs of this transformation.

Today, the aim is to make the AgitaTerre Festival a benchmark event for raising awareness and mobilising people around the challenges of the transition, while ensuring that it remains open and accessible to all.

Festival du Verbe

Festival du Verbe​

The Festival du Verbe was created in 2004. Claude Nougaro didn’t want to be the patron. He wanted to be part of it. To take part. He came to Laffite-Toupière at the end of his poetic tour to dutifully spot “Les Fables de ma Fontaine”. The Festival du Verbe began in the Occitan spirit, inviting the Fabulous Troubadors, André Minvielle, Jean-Pierre Mader and even pupils and teachers from the Calendrettes, Occitan schools.
So many artists advocating the high, lilting Word. In the spirit of Greek or Chinese festivals in the countryside, where the most dramatic tragedies cohabited with the most caustic satyrs.

Today in Martres-Tolosane, the festival continues to evolve, offering a superb programme.

Bel Air Festival​

Every summer in Saint-Araille

The Bel Air adventure began in 2016, thanks to the complicity of three friends.
Combining our desire to revitalise our rural area with our passion for electronic music, we dreamt of a weekend where music, live entertainment, good local produce and environmental awareness would come together. For the last six editions in July, the small village of Saint-Araille, nestling in the hills of the Haut-Garonne, has been a beacon for music and conviviality.

Since 2020, the BLR association has also been involved in event production, artist management and outreach, organising workshops specifically in electronic music for young people.
