About the International Poster and Graphic Design Festival

Chaumont's flagship event has been staged in May and June every year since 1989. Graphic output from France and beyond is shown at several venues around the town. An unmissable attraction for graphic-design professionals and enthusiasts, it hosts about 25 000 visitors during its four-week duration. The Festival is staged at the town's main cultural venues (Les Silos, Espace Bouchardon, Chapelle des Jésuites, etc.) and in outdoor spaces that extend the reach of the event.
