What could be better than a lively city centre? After two years marked by the Covid-19 health crisis, the association of merchants and craftsmen of Chartres (Eure-et-Loir) and its agglomeration intends to make up for lost time. A rich and unusual program awaits residents and visitors in 2022. We take stock here.

The year 2022 begins with the traditional winter sales: kick-off today, Wednesday January 12, 2022 and until February 8, 2022. In the city center, merchants are busy trying to get customers to find new pieces for the house or their dressing room!

Love reigns in Chartres

February will be placed under the sign of lovers and Valentine’s Day. The shops compete with beautiful gift ideas to please your other half and the city center will also dress in the colors of love, with, from February 1, 2022, the implementation of lettering LOVE on Place des Halles.

On February 12, a photographer will be present to immortalize the most beautiful smiles near the “love”.

The quirky parade

In March and April, the Showcases C’Chartres will offer gourmet entertainment, especially ahead of Easter.

And as the saying goes so well, “in April, don’t discover yourself by a thread”, the Chartraine association is organizing its very first quirky fashion show. A first not to be missed to laugh and support the merchants of Chartres.

Dressed to represent their store, managers and/or customers will parade on Place Châtelet. And this animation could hold some nice surprises, as Nathalie Casalinho, developer from the city center points out: “one can imagine that someone parades dressed with saucepans, or for example, with an insurance logo”.

The first race for cafe boys and girls!

The month of May will mark the return of the collection Solidarity, to give a second life to your clothes, objects and toys.

Another major first for the Vitrines in 2022:a race of cafe boys and girls. Here again, a great moment of conviviality is to be expected in the streets of the center of Chartres.

The place of departure is not yet completely defined, but the waiters and waitresses will be able to compete in the pedestrian streets of the Beauceron capital on the occasion of an incredible journey!

For sunny days…

The Vitrines C’Chartres will also participate, the last weekend of May, in the medieval festival of Chartres.

The arrival of fine weather in June will make businesses want to bloom. The association encourages its members to take part in the second edition of the Chartres en Fleurs competition.

On June 2, 3 and 4, 2022, the summer sale will make its big comeback to offer great deals to customers.

The following weekend, the Place du Cygne and Marceau will celebrate perfume and flowers. Finally, the month will be marked by the second sales session of the year.

To start the summer in style, the Vitrines C’Chartres give an appointment to the inhabitants and the tradesmen for theAperitif Time, edition number 4 on July 1, 2022, an evening placed, again under the sign of conviviality from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.
