Bread Festival

Today is the beginning of the annual Bread Festival (la Fête du Pain) in France. The week-long event takes place from 10 to 17 May this year.

It is not a large festival, but during the week in almost every city and town, bakers, artists and painters get together and display bread in artistic ways. In large cities there may be a tent with displays and demos. In small towns, local bakers may give free classes. There may also be games for young children.

The website dedicated to the festival is http://www.lafetedupain.com/. The content is all in French.
