Le Festival de Bargemon is a gathering of 30 artists, about half of whom are from New York, that come to Bargemon to work and exhibit at the end of July each year. The exhibition takes place outdoors in The Place St Etienne and lasts for 4 days. There is also a schedule of performances ranging from Classic Rock and Blues to World Music and Dance. Children are encouraged to come to participate in a large scale art piece and to work with some of the artists. The goal of the festival is to bring together creative people with a contemporary aesthetic in this beautiful provençal village.
