Every 2 years takes place around its famous lighthouse, the “Wind Festival” of Chassiron.
Organized by the municipality of Saint-Denis-d’Oléron and co-organized by the association Kosmodul’air, this festival brings together pilots and artists of the wind.
Upon arrival, the Giants of Heaven and the Wind Gardens of Kosmodul’air greet the public with warm color schemes, suggesting a colorful festive atmosphere.
In the background, the flying field is framed by banner installations opening up a perspective on spectacular and spectacular aerial installations.
The flight scene is animated by the demonstrations of the acrobatic flight teams as well as the visual and luminous performances of the artist Jean-Paul Richon. Finally, at the back of the stage, in a sky magnified by suites of Arches d’O, the Dancers of Heaven come alive in a field of giant poppies.
