Take part in FESTO 2017

FESTO is a meeting based around the international language Esperanto organised by Espéranto-Jeunes, which takes place almost every year in summer. It’s a pleasant meeting, open to everybody — teenagers, youth, families, Esperanto veterans — in which takes place a colorful cultural program and exciting musical evenings contrasting with a quiet program during the day.

In 2017, FESTO will take place at Château de Grésillon, located in the town of Baugé, in the beautiful rural region of Anjou, very close to its capital city, Angers. The castle is easy to reach by TGV from Paris.

We are waiting for you at FESTO from the 28th of July to the 4th of August.
