Events at Chartres cathedral

Throughout the year, Notre-Dame de Chartres lives to the rhythm of religious and cultural events.

Religious celebrations

Every week, several masses are held in Chartres cathedral at the main altar, in the choir or in one of the chapels of the crypt. Coming to Mass in Chartres means attending a religious celebration in an exceptional setting. With its nave having recovered its splendour of old and its vast crypt, it's impossible to remain insensitive to the beauty of the cathedral during a moment of quiet spiritual communion.

This magnificent monument is also a gathering place. The cathedral is either a step along the way on, or the culmination of, many pilgrimages, national as well as international. For centuries, it has been so, and the tradition continues today.


Cultural events

Chartres cathedral also hosts cultural events, especially during the summer season. With an undeniable charm and exceptional acoustics, it is a grand stage for festivals, concerts and exhibitions. Among its unmissable highlights are the Nuit des Cathédrales, the "Soirées Autrement" and the International Organ Festival.
