Eco-responsible events

Eco-responsible events

To party with the planet in mind

While all festivals are now paying attention to their impact, some, by their nature or beliefs, are more clearly committed to allowing us to dance, laugh and dream while respecting the environment.

Thus, from the 10th to the 13th of August, Insane, commits to being a more respectful festival and brings festival-goers with it thanks to the Green Tsunami, a sort of eco-gesture challenge.

In Montfavet, hay and agriculture are celebrated on the 25th and 27th of August.

Until October, enjoy Nature with the events in Parc du Ventoux and its activities showing you the secrets of the fauna and flora of this region. Nature outings take place thanks to the programme of outings in the sensitive Natural Areas of Vaucluse
