Initially scheduled in July 2020, then postponed to July 2021, the first edition of the naturist festival requires a significant organization, and a consistent budget. Before a dedicated board of directors on January 30, the French Federation of Naturism has just launched an already controversial call for donations.
In Great Britain, the Nudefest is celebrated every year. The next one is scheduled for July 5, 2021.
The text is clear, perhaps too. Published this Thursday, January 21 on social networks, the request for donations (from 5 to 5,000 euros) is not unanimous. “In order to carry out the 1st” French Naturist “festival in Baugé (49150) on World Naturism Day, we appeal to your generosity to help us achieve it,” explain federal officials. “You can imagine that such a festival creates considerable financial need, which only the federation could not bear.
Beyond their own funds and the contributions of the various partners contacted, the organizers hope that naturists, individually, will agree to give their mite. “It was thus decided to launch a collection with you, naturists, with a federal license or not; the important thing is that we can specify the budget for this festival”, while he specified that “it is quite obvious that if for some reason, independent of our will , this event could not take place this year 2021 (July 3 and 4), your donations will be transferred to the next event “.
