A collaborative project
This convoy will stop in five cities along the Loire: Tours, Amboise, Chaumont sur Loire, Blois and Saint-Dyé-sur-Loire.
These stages will be an opportunity to organize, for the general public and the school public, educational activities, concerts, shows, meetings, demonstrations of heritage professions, farmers’ markets, photographic exhibitions, etc.
For these activities, the Domaine national de Chambord, supported by the stage towns, calls on local associations or companies. The very principle of the stone journey project is based on cooperation between different actors, in the same way as all the trades that were necessary for the construction of Chambord.
A varied audience
The stone journey will therefore constitute, by its scale and programming, a major tourist offer at the end of the summer 2019 period. The project is intended to be a popular event, encouraged by the free nature of all the events and by its roaming. It thus aims to attract both a local audience, curious to rediscover Loire culture but also the national and international public, still very present in the region at this time of year.
The journey of the stone will end with a festive evening, free and open to all in Chambord on Friday, September 6, starting at 7pm.
On the agenda:
– Concert of the Orchestre harmonie et des Trompes de la Garde Républicaine accompanied by the Trompes de l’Ecole de Chambord
– Digital show presented by the Centre-Val de Loire Region
– Fireworks display
