The Festival Quai des Bulles

This festival was created in 1981 by Jacques Plouët accompanied by the cartoonists Jean-Claude Fournier, Alain Goutal and Dieter and quickly grew. Since its creation, the festival’s motto has not changed: it is the desire to promote and support the work of authors and creation, to help disseminate the works to the general public and more specific audiences. For many years, the festival has taken place at the Palais du Grand Large, it has been strengthened by volunteers and diversified through a program of authors, meetings, exhibitions, animations, etc… It has created its own “moments” that have become a must for its visitors, such as “Les contes à bulles” (Bubble stories), its revelation prizes, its children’s area, its comic book cafés, etc. Each year, Quai des Bulles is supported by its association and welcomes around 40,000 visitors.

the 40th edition in 2021!

We remember …

After a year without a festival, Quai des Bulles returns in force to celebrate its 40th anniversary! To celebrate these great reunions, the event will be spread over 4 days and will take place on October 29, 30, 31 and November 1.A singular edition in every way, starting with its poster, designed by Fabien Vehlmann. For the first time in 40 years, the organization of the festival wished to award the Grand Prix de l’Affiche to a comic book writer. With this choice, Quai des Bulles wanted to put the spotlight on this profession, which is still relatively unknown to the general public, and to participate in the recognition of this unprecedented edition, which will not forget to celebrate comics and the projected image in all its forms: exhibitions, meetings, animations, book fairs, cinema
