From 6 May to 1st June 2014, the Maison de Loire in Anjou, the Loire Authion Valley Distric Community and the Loire Authion Tourist Office - all three organisers of this big intercommunal celebration - bring the region to life with the colours of Canada for several weeks, with the guest river of honour THE SAINT-LAURENT.
The UNESCO “River Culture” Chair is now a reality, under the joint aegis of the Universities of Tours (Karl Wantzen, IMACOF) and Angers (Aziz Ballouche), in partnership with Mission Val de Loire.
The centre, inaugurated in mid-December 2013 at 11 quai Danton in Chinon comprises three buildings. The first is dedicated to university premises and is home to IMACOF (Engineering of Aquatic Environments and River Corridors) and the CETU Elmis. The second building is home to a business incubator. The third is a farm house to be restored, which will cost a total investment of 2.2 million euros, of which 1.5 million has already been invested in the first two buildings.
A free, public event for all the family, every two years the Loire Festival welcomes Loire lovers as well as anyone wishing to set off in discovery of the beauty and wealth of the Loire Valley World Heritage. From 18 to 22 September, Orléans will be hosting the largest European gathering of rivercraft. Over 200 boats and 600 bargepeople, 400 artists and some 150 free activities will bring the banks to life along 2 km. The Mission Val de Loire will attend the Centre Regional Council's stand.
