A land of sharing, a land of celebration!

In Vals du Dauphiné, the year is scattered with wonderful traditions and key events.

Sound and light show of the Historiales

1h40 of great show – 100 actors – 1000 m² of scenic space – 150 costumes – 7000 spectators – exceptional scenery – pyrotechnics – music and every 2 years, a new period of French history to discover.

The Historiales Sound and Light Show is one of the biggest night shows in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. It is a must-see event. An unforgettable moment under the stars to discover a grandiose show! A show for all audiences, accessible to all.


La Nuit du Lac de Romagnieu [Lake Romagnieu Night] 

The must-see amongst the must-sees 

Every first Saturday in August, the Nuit du Lac de Romagnieu is a tradition that marks the heart of the summer in Vals du Dauphiné. This fireworks show is without a doubt the most beautiful in the region. Music follows the second round of fireworks lighting up the sky and chills run through the audience.  

But that’s not all! La Nuit du Lac de Romagnieu then turns into a wonderful and friendly ball, an enormous refreshment bar and a podium and dance floor for bold moves! This is the holiday spirit!  

Childern festival PRE EN BULLES

On the top of a hill, in the heart of a chestnut forest, the Pré en Bulles days are, every two years and for 4 days, shows and workshops for children!

Theatre, circus arts, puppets, music, modelling, emotional wall, clay make-up, paper hats,… in a maze of small paths with mysterious, surprising outcomes, a magical wood and out of time where artistic awakening, autonomy, curiosity, respect for others and the environment are essential.


La Fête du Miron

Miron is a chocolate, a speciality of the city. A traditional production based on nougatine, candied lemon and chocolate coated marzipan. It can be found in several pastries of La Tour du Pin. It also has its own festival every year at the beginning of July: 3 days of totally free activities, to highlight the local heritage and move the city.
