Corsica comes to ChamonixFestival celebrating all things Corsican takes place this weekend
La Corse a Cham returns to Chamonix for 3 days of Corsican culture, music, dancing, food, drink and entertainment.
From Friday to Sunday the centre of Chamonix will host a market selling typical Corsican produce and there will be free open air concerts and entertainment, as well as a prize draw to win holidays with Corsica Ferries.
A number of bars and restaurants will be hosting special events, serving Corsican dishes to the sounds of musicians from the idyllic island off the south coast of France.
Although Corsica is classed as a region of France it is actually closer to Italy and influences of both countries have shaped its culture. The island was once an independent republic and Corsicans are fiercely proud of their history; this annual festival is a great way to discover more about the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte.
The festival schedule can be found on our events calendar.
