The partner associations

The Tourist Office of Charny is in partnership with two important associations: the “Union Commerciale et Artisanale de Charny” and the “Comité des Fêtes de Charny”. Together they organise cultural events.

Find out about these two associations and see the event calendar.

Union Commerciale et Artisanale de Charny (the Trade and Craft Union of Charny)

The “Union Commerciale et Artisanale de Charny” is an association which organises various events in the town, for example: the painters' and writers' day (“journée des peintres et des écrivains”), the Christmas market and the “quinzaine commerciale”.

This Non-profit organisation (by the law of 1901) has an office headed by the president Véronique Huet (owner of “Mon Cadeau” gift shop).

Many shop-owners have created a system with a fidelity card: “Charny +". Points can be collected in several shops

The Harmony of Charny

This association has existed since 1881. Today it has 18 musicians. Rehearsals are on Saturdays from 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm in the “salle polyvalente” in Charny. There is a varied repertoire and new members are always welcome (saxophone, trumpet, percussion and other instruments...).

Sports and spare-time activities

This association is made up of volunteers from Charny and neighbouring villages. Each year a “vide grenier” (car boot

sale) takes place and the local choir performs for the “fête de la Musique”. In August a picnic is organised. During the winter, entertainment evenings are organised for everybody to get together.
