Don’t miss: the Johannic Feasts
Book at the Kyriad hotel in Orléans in May and celebrate the Fêtes Johanniques, the most important event of the year. A local folk festival, they celebrate the liberation of the city by Joan of Arc and involve a lovely spread of culinary specialties. In June, the Orléans Jazz Festival sets up in the city, just a few steps from your room! Every two years, as the summer comes to a close, a multitude of boats come together in the port of Orléans for the Loire Festival, dedicated to river navigation. Finally, in November, the Festival de Travers showcases today's music and artists.
