Little Bouilles Festival

2023 edition: June 17 & 18

Project born from the friends of the Petits Bouilles, discover the history, the objectives and the values ​​that this association wishes to transmit. Representing a highlight during the summer season, the Festival des Petites Bouilles is an ideal setting to share a moment with the family. 


Who are they ? 

The project was born in Pierrefonds, a village widely known in the region for the beauty of its medieval-looking castle, renovated by the architect Viollet-le-Duc. Surrounded by lush forest, the second national forest in France, it is in this idyllic setting that the idea of ​​developing a festival came about allowing local associations, artists and craftsmen to meet around cultural events, thus enriching our heritage. This project also makes it possible to highlight Pierrefonds in all its dimensions: historical, cultural and human.

What are their goals ?

Other than developing a cultural project in rural areas for children, as well as for their families, the Amis des Petites Bouilles offer quality cultural programming combining discovery and diversity, through live shows and a fun space for discoveries. It is also the perfect opportunity to highlight the associations of the municipality, those of the community of municipalities of Lisières de l'Oise, as well as our region who work for local life, around a unifying project. The association also wishes to include this annual event in an "eco-citizen" approach, by offering awareness-raising and activities, whether through the protection of our ecosystems or the consideration of all the components of our social environment.

The Festival des Petites Bouilles thus makes it possible to include in our agenda, an annual meeting, on the territory in connection with the school circles, by transforming a space known to children - the old station of the village of Pierrefonds - the time of 'a weekend.

The association of friends of Petites Bouilles thus has the ambition to bring a feeling of belonging to the territory, the feeling of forming a society together by enriching and helping each other.
