Breeding Festival: from good breeding to good eating

See you on August 24 and 25, 2024 in Brive-La-Gaillarde for the 55th edition. This is a unique opportunity to discover over 15 m² in the city center, more than a hundred breeders and producers and more than 000 animals. A giant farm in the heart of Brive!

An event to promote and defend local products

The breeding festival from good breeding to good eating (formerly called the “Breeding and Gourmet Table Festival”) is a local institution. By importing “the countryside” into the heart of the city, it allows us to reconnect with the tradition of the real fairs of yesteryear.

It is, for the general public, all about discovering the most beautiful animals selected from their breed and for professionals, to exchange and meet.

This event aims to promote and defend the quality of local products and the know-how of regional producers to amaze both gaillard kids and adults.
