Saint-Donat cultural activities

Walking circuit to discover local history

All villages have a history, and Saint-Donat’s falls in the wake of the great colonization movements of the 19th century. Discover old houses, arrays reproduced from old photographs forming a historical fresco, all complemented by educational panels. There’s also a 5.6 km course for walking or biking. Go to the tourist information office to get the brochure “Saint-Donat tells you…” which will give you more information on this walking circuit. Download the PDF of the course

A culture-filled summer

Throughout the summer, take advantage of the free outdoor performances in the heart of the village. Outdoor shows are presented every Thursday in July until mid-August at 6.30 p.m. at the Parc des Pionniers.

In case of rain, performances are held in the Church. The Place de l’Église Church receives groups or popular singers every Saturday from the end of June to mid-August, from 8 :30 p.m.
