24 years “Festival de Pétanque”
The Festival de Pétanque, which is being held for the 24th time this year, is one of the biggest pétanque sports events in Germany. The playground is located on the Rhine bank promenade in the heart of the old town, on one of Düsseldorf’s most beautiful and exposed squares. More than 1,100 players from home and abroad are expected to attend the four different tournaments.
A special split surface will be applied directly on the banks of the Rhine for the tournament weekend. Spectators have the possibility to watch the games from the upper promenade. At the same time, food and drinks are served up on the promenade, balls are offered for sale and French “savoir vivre” is lived.
Once again this year, the patronage of the entire event will be held by the French Consul General in Düsseldorf, Dr. Olivia Berkeley-Christmann, together with Mr. Thomas Geisel, Lord Mayor of the City of Düsseldorf.
