Theatre and high altitude festivals

In the heart of the fabulous Gavarnie Cirque, there is an exceptional high altitude theatre festival held every summer - a unique artistic experience!

Jazz à Luz : since 1990, this festival has never failed to deliver, and works successfully to discover contemporary jazz.

La Balade Circassienne walk takes you on a trip as light as air, in an exceptional natural setting, above the heights of Cauterets.

The Pyrenean Festival of Natural Images is dedicated to nature and mountain photography in the Pyrenees. 

Le Petit théâtre de la gare (Little Railway theatre) in Argelès-Gazost, has a year round program of shows and various events.

Events and festivities

Heritage is a big deal for the Bigourdan people and they celebrate it !

Village fetes, cheese fairs, pork chops, garbure stew, sheep dogs parading themselves. The Pyrenean culture is anchored in get-togethers that combine great shows and local music with panache.
