Events and festivities

Festival "blue hands", a festive and family event: mid-September. Festival of street arts organized by the municipality. Everyone will be guided through a series of artistic interventions (visual arts, circus arts, street arts, theater, dance, music ...) outdoors, proposed by amateur groups and professional. Since the Middle Ages until the first half of the 20th century, the city has experienced La Ferté-sous-Jouarre prosperity through the extraction of gritstone and manufacture of millstones were exported worldwide. The sudden decline of this industry has left a deep trauma. At La Ferte is in memory of working so hard for these men, which is also its heritage, the city wants to honor the creation of a festival of street arts. Between the extraction sites of stone, cutting workshops, market activity on the Marne and at the station, reflected sounds, rhythm, color, an abundance of workers, men, women or children. All these elements are symbolic of the past, and it is this symbolism that will be transmitted and reinterpreted in various events scheduled for this day. The "blue hands" are those workers who were cutting stone fly flint flakes which penetrated the flesh. The hand symbol may work but it is also the symbol of giving and sharing. The idea is to work both on the territory of the real and imaginary territory.
