Viva Cité Festival 2023

24 june. > 25 june.


After having juggled for two years between cancellations and adaptations imposed by the Covid, last year, Viva Cité presented itself in its original form: reunions celebrated during a whole weekend, as crazy as strong.

Produced by the city of Sotteville-lès-Rouen and our partner Atelier 231, National Center for Street Art, Festival Viva Cité will celebrate its 34th edition on June 24 and 25 !

An original scenography signed by Les Plastiqueurs, about sixty companies for more than 300 artists, the children's space piloted by La Maison pour Tous, the city will indeed beat to the rhythm of more than 200 performances of free shows accessible to all.

Rendezvous at noon on Saturday in the Garenne wood for a first taste and from 1:45 pm on the Town Hall square. The arrival of AKA, a giant puppet from the company L'Homme Debout, followed by the procession of La Marche des Nez de Clowns sans Frontières, will precede the official kick-off orchestrated by Les Vibrants Défricheurs with the participation of more than a hundred inhabitants.
