The city of Thiers invites you to "pampariner" in its medieval streets. It's the Pamparina in Thiers, a free music festival. Some headliners well-known, around forty groups, from hip-hop, soul, folk, song, rock and even disco: a joyful eclectic recipe to make you live three unforgettable days of street festival.

Thiers is an open-air stage to celebrate the arrival of summer. It's in the medieval alleys, in the hidden squares or in front of the media library, facing the mountain, that you enjoy this joyful and dynamic festival. The city then shows itself in its best light to offer you three unique days of music. Pleasure for the eyes, in the medieval town. Pleasure for the ears, with so many concerts. Also, pleasure for gourmets: gourmet stands and restaurants delight the taste buds.

Start the summer dancing in the medieval heart of Thiers

Here, partying is “pampariner” in the dialect of Thiers, the whole town is decorated for the event. Everything is pedestrian in Thiers during these three days, ideal for clapping hands and feet. The terraces of the cafés spread out, decorations in a thousand colors dress the walls and the music resounds everywhere on an air of freedom. La Pamparina in short: the only festival that dares to make half-timbered houses vibrate.

In the evening, the big stages keep you dancing until the middle of the night. All this, sprinkled with an orchestra that roams the streets. Festive and family atmosphere guaranteed for this Pamparina in Thiers! And, in addition, this festival is 100% free. Because we are in Auvergne.
