The festival proposed by Ploërmel Communauté, entitled Brocéliande Sports Nature, will take place from Thursday 12 to Sunday 29 May 2022. The event created in 2013 is very popular and eagerly awaited for this release, due to 2 cancellations, due to the health crisis in 2020 and 2021. However, the festival is no longer part of the Fête de la Bretagne, as it was before, which does not change anything, given the motivation of the organizers to present an exceptional moment to all participants and visitors …
The majority of the activities offered, whether sporting, recreational or cultural, for this eighth edition, will take place in the village, located on the site of the Lac au Dock Marine Recreation Base, in a green environment. Rest assured, work on the Lac au Duc dam is coming to an end and the road to the Naval Base will open to traffic on Friday, May 6…
On Wednesday 20 April, Alain Hervé, Vice President of Culture and Sports at Ploërmel Communauté, and Jerome Jagory, Head of Sports, gathered around the organizers of the various events of this festival in order to present the festival programme. Fun days. Everyone had a few minutes of talking about their discipline…
The sponsor of this eighth edition of the Brocéliande Sport Nature Festival is Vincent Combes, owner of the Eciques de Kerviolo de Loyat. He competed in the French Trec Championship, and became the Vice Champion of France as an amateur, in 2021. The competition included several events whose goal was to highlight the qualities of the horse/rider pair.
Thursday 12 May and Friday 13 May
