About this event

Zambuni Communications invite you to come and join us for a celebration of rivers and wild food in L'Oasis, an ancient walled garden, lined with fig trees where three rivers meet, in Chalabre in the foothills of the French Pyrenees.

The River Festival in Chalabre, from 16th - 18th September 2022, celebrates the outdoor life, seasonal and local produce – food, wine and beer, and offers the opportunity to explore the varied local fly fishing opportunities with experienced guides in rivers and lakes.

There will be mountain and nature hikes as well as wild swimming. The River Festival is supported by some of the best outdoors brands in the world although also realises the importance of underpinning this with local knowledge and produce. This event focuses on sustainability and regeneration.

As part of the ticket price, you can expect the following over the 3 days:

  • A fire-cooked meal and local beer and wine
  • Guided fly fishing with Charles Jardine and Yannick Riviere
  • Optional add-on of foraging with a local guide
  • Guided wild swimming and hiking meets
  • A welcome goody bag, supported by YETI and the festival partners

Focused on fire-cooking, foraging and fly fishing. Sleepy. Obscure. Chalabre is a village that time has only started to rediscover. Its blend of untouched local enterprise, such as long standing bakeries and locally stocked butchers, and plucky new enterprises offer the grounded convenience and local culture that pervade the region.

The River Festival is proud to partner with some of the best outdoors brands in the world although realises the importance of underpinning this with local knowledge and produce. Nestled between the limestone foothills of the Pyrenees Chalabre is the home base from which the peaks and troughs of the wider region can be discovered.

Our partners include YETI, Hunter Gather Cook, BDQ, BBQ Magazine, Weber UK and Gozney with more to be announced.
