Every year, the International Garden Festival of Chaumont-sur-Loire offers a multitude of surprises to visitors who discover the new plant creations. This new edition will be held from 24 April to 3 November 2024 on the theme "The Life-source garden".

Less than 200km from Paris between Tours and Blois, lies a natural oasis perched 40 metres above the wild River Loire: the Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire. The doors to its chateau and surrounding park are open all year round, but the arguable star of the calendar is the garden festival from April to November, bursting with plant curiosities including some rare species, and unusual blooms usually considered unobtainable.

"The Life-source garden" for this new edition of the festival

The "Life-source garden" edition highlights the garden as an exceptional place to live, where the forces of life unfold in all their forms. It underlines the need to protect the garden and its allies, who offer us so many benefits, in the face of the alarming disappearance of insects. It also presents the challenge faced by the designers of the 2024 gardens, who have succeeded in illustrating this challenge through creative and innovative projects aimed at raising public awareness of the essential role of gardens.
