MGs and Classic cars

Chaque année le festival reçoit la visite de clubs anglais de passionnés de MG and de voitures classiques. Vous aurez l’occasion de les voir stationner à l’entrée du site de Penn Ar Pont et de les croiser aux alentours de Châteauneuf pendant le festival. 

For many years Fest Jazz has become a focal point for a superb rally of MGs and other Classic cars from the UK and France.


If you have an MG or other classic car that you would like to bring to the festival please send us an email at contact@fest-jazz.com with your name, email address, vehicle make and model and its registration number. Then we can notify you about the events planned for the weekend.

Last year’s car events for the weekend included:

On friday

– 12:30: Meet and greet at Le Chaland on the quayside at Châteauneuf-du-Faou. A member of the festival team will be there to supply information, stickers for the cars, answer your questions and give out brochures and guides in English.

– 16:00: The music starts on the main festival site. Exchange your festival ticket for a bracelet which will give you access to all the venues.
