The Ponton, on the banks of the Loire, has brought out its best assets to live intense festive moments with you. The music, or musics, will be the link of this unusual guinguette.

The recipe : a creative, accessible, multidisciplinary, intergenerational and festive cultural programme, a menu of drinks and light meals made up mainly of local, organic and short-circuit products (craft beers, natural and organic wines, individual dishes or dishes to be shared made up of fresh products…)

Have a drink, let yourself be carried away by the musical programme or chat with friends… It’s the ideal place!
