See you at the 29th edition of the Festival Au Bonheur des Mômes from August 23 to 27, 2021.
ALL TO THE MANIP' ! HAUT LES MARIONNETTES...will be the theme of the 29th "disarticulated" festival. A featherweight edition, but which will tickle...
For almost 30 years, Au Bonheur des Mômes has been a melting pot of companies from all over the world, mixing the spirit of the scoundrel with the poetry of the acrobat, shaking up its world with the same impertinence, this curiosity tinged with mischief, and this openness to the performing arts according to this very healthy principle: "Above all, don't be too wise...! ".

They are pretty, the puppets, yes... but they also have things to say! Of string and paper, shadow or glove, marionettes, puppets and other fairground giants will be manipulating as the "happy" guests of the Au Bonheur des Mômes festival. For its 29th edition, Le Grand-Bornand will put the spotlight on this ancestral and universal theatrical art... with 12 specialized artists and companies out of the 35 to be seen on the most tender festival of the summer!

ALL AT 30 YEARS, FROM AUGUST 21 TO 26, 2022 !
Our choice to maintain the holding of this 29th edition "disarticulated", therefore, of the festival is the fruit of desires certainly, but takes into account a certain number of constraints (sanitary, organizational and budgetary) which made it unthinkable to hold the event in its entirety, and limited to a gauge of 5000 festival-goers. It is thus in a shorter format - from Monday 23 to Friday 27 August - that the most tender festival of the summer will animate eight halls and tents, including the new "Grange aux étoiles", in the setting of "La Source", which will henceforth give more "body" to the event - and this all year round - in Grand-Bornand. This will give the festival a new lease of life after a year's absence and allow us to prepare for the 30th anniversary of the European event for young audiences, which is already scheduled for August 21-26, 2022.
