Candlelight Evenings

Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte, Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte - 77950 Maincy
From May 20, 2023 to September 30, 2023

A candlelight journey back in time to the splendour of 17th-century celebrations at the Vaux-le-Vicomte château

The Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte will host the spectacular Candelight Evenings event from 20 May to 30 September 2023. During the event, the château – a 17th-century architectural gem set in a French formal garden designed by André Le Nôtre – will be illuminated by 2,000 candles, making for a truly enchanting experience inspired by the celebration that took place here on 17 August 1661. The fountains play as dusk sets in, and the celebration winds up with a gold and silver fireworks display, during which the actor André Dussollier reads out a text by Jean de La Fontaine.
Candlelight Evenings: from 20 May to 30 September 2023, every Saturday. July and August, every Saturday and Friday.
€22 full price; €17.50 reduced price; €16 for gardens only; free for children under 6.
