Puy du Fou : A lot of new things. 2022 will mark the 45th anniversary of this extraordinary artistic adventure. Inspired by history and legend, the first French park has made its unique concept a huge popular success and a universal model that is being exported. Regularly rewarded throughout the world and recognized for its artistic audacity, the Puy du Fou amazes with its creativity and its strength of innovation to make its shows real films played live.
Twice elected ” Best Park in the World “, the Puy du Fou is more than ever number 1 in the hearts of the French who place it at the top of the online rankings (Google Avis, Facebook and TripAdvisor), all categories combined. This year, the Puy du Fou is celebrating its 45 years of passion and creative ebullience with new features and
major events. The 2022 season will be marked by the new version of the emblematic show “The Sign of Triumph”, entirely revisited to plunge spectators into a breathtaking epic, punctuated by new twists and many surprises, in a real Roman arena.
The metamorphosis of the arena
In 2022, the Puy du Fou presents the NEW “Sign of Triumph” with a new staging! With its Roman arches and its 7,000 seats, the now mythical Gallo-Roman Stadium is getting a makeover and is undergoing a profound transformation, the highlight of which is the visual metamorphosis of the main set, in the center of the stage. More than 110 moving set elements will unfold to transform, in a few seconds, into an immense imperial galley (40m long and 15m high).
Puy du Fou : A lot of novelties
In the heart of the arena, the spectators will experience the fury of the Circus Games with tenfold emotions. After the gladiator fights and the legendary chariot race, the Roman governor condemns the prisoners to a new ordeal, and causes the metamorphosis of the arena itself. In a stunning finale, the Gallo-Roman Stadium becomes the scene of a spectacular naumachy – a naval battle – between the gigantic imperial galley that appears by surprise, and the rafts of Gallic prisoners destined to be sunk.
For its 45th anniversary, the Puy du Fou is creating two Great Events in 2022.

- Short channels first
Short supply chains have long been a priority for the Puy du Fou catering service. Whether from its own market gardening or from partnerships with local farmers, fresh and local products are everywhere. The Village XV III has thus become the landmark of Vendée gastronomy. Gourmet sandwiches, prefou, terrines and charcuterie from the Vendée, accompanied by wines from the Vendée fiefs, offer an exceptional taste experience. Throughout the Puy du Fou, short supply chains are becoming increasingly important, since 70% of food suppliers are located less than 100 km from the Puy du Fou, and 50% are Vendéen.
The Puy du Fou is more than ever number 1 in the hearts of the French, who place it at the top of online rankings (Google Avis, Facebook and TripAdvisor), all categories combined. For more information, visit www.puydufou.com

I’m Michelle, and I love to travel. As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
