Over the years, the success of this festival has made it an unmissable event in the cultural calendar. La Fête de l’estampe provides a festive opportunity for many to discover this rich art that includes lithography, engraving, serigraphy, artists’ books and even digital prints. Exhibitions, outdoor studios, training sessions, open studios, conferences, performances, auctions, giant prints,… were organised in France and in many other countries in Europe on 26th May, 2020, for one day, or longer in some areas. Any event related to printmaking open at least one day between 15 and 31 May can participate.
