Le Grand Pruneau Show

Agen celebrates it's status as the capital of the dried fruit!

This festival's name literally translates as "the great prune show", as Agen is the capital of the dried fruit. Taking place during the last weekend of August, the programme includes live concerts, film screenings, circus workshops, sport tournaments and of course prune tastings. Most of the performances are in the main square Place du Dr Esquirol, next to the town hall, while the surrounding streets are closed to traffic to make room for marching bands, circus performers and chef demonstrations. Having begun in 2005, the festival has steadily grown in size and importance, from an initial audience of 30,000 to crowds of over 60,000.
