Rugby Festivals in France

Be a part of one of the most exciting European rugby festivals this year. Bring your squad to the Parisian Festival of Rugby.

Welcoming hosts, St Quentin en Yvelines Rugby, are based on the outskirts of Paris, in a beautiful part of the countryside near Versailles - the ideal place to relax and get into the zone before your big games.

Our French rugby festival packages offer the perfect opportunity for your team to up their game, playing against an excellent standard of competition.

With the chance to perfect their technique on the pitch, your group can also explore all that Paris has to offer, at the end of play.

So if you've always fancied taking a bateau down the Seine or climbing the Eiffel Tower's 1,665 steps, make sure you take the opportunity to explore this stunning city, while you enjoy one of the finest rugby festivals in France.
