The Cognac Festival - Event in Cognac

The Cognac Festival is a popular event aimed at promoting the region's wine products, particularly cognac, a fine brandy made from grapes. It takes place every year in the last weekend of July in Cognac, Charentes. Cognac is celebrated, of course, but so are pineau des Charentes, Charentais local wines (vins de pays) and regional products like Charentais melon or Marennes oysters.

A dozen fishermen's huts are converted for the occasion on the shaded quays of the marina. In a sociable, laid-back atmosphere, visitors can sit around the tables and sample regional products served with local wine or savour delicious cognac cocktails.

Each night, the Cognac Festival audience can let their hair down at two concerts. There has always been a varied, high-quality line-up, with artists such as Axel Bauer, Sinclair, Les Hurlements d'Léo, Yann Tiersen, Matmatah, Catherine Ringer, Louis Bertignac and many more!
