Programming and events

From the very outset, Chambord was dedicated to the arts; following its construction by Francis I, numerous artists came to participate in the festivities of the royal court or for entertainment proposed by the king. Ever since that time, the tradition has been preserved, as rulers and personalities alike have left traces of their presence on the site.
Faithful to this centuries-old artistic tradition, in 2010 the National Estate of Chambord brought into being a far-reaching cultural program, which in its broad outlines showcases the three major cultural fields of the Renaissance: texts, music, and the fine arts (theater and dance have been added on). The artists having exhibited their works in Chambord since 2010 include Georges Rousse, Paul Rebeyrolle, Guillaume Bruère, Djamel Tatah and Philippe Cognée


Chambord Festival

To celebrate its tenth year of existence, the Festival will exceptionally be composed of 17 concerts, including a few surprises: a concert in the forest, a recital at the foot of the double staircase, an evening in homage to the king of Argentinean tango Astor Piazzolla, a reading-concert with Vanessa Wagner and Arthur H, and a new concept: a musical walk in the castle, after it has been closed…

10 candles to blow out and 17 opportunities to meet talented artists who will present programmes ranging from baroque to contemporary music!

NB: The Insula orchestra concert, which was supposed to open this edition, had to be cancelled due to the restrictions linked to the health crisis.
