Like every year since 2001, an entire day is dedicated to games of all kind. This year, the Games festival will be on Saturday 28 May almost everywhere in France.
It is the opportunity to meet people of all ages and of different cultures around a unifying theme and to share moments of social interactions. Surely, there is someone who organises a Games festival near your home, so don’t hesitate to go there, plus it’s completely free.
