Only the Cajun Film part of the festival starts on Thursday evening.  The Dance Festival starts at 4pm on Friday and ends late on Sunday evening.  Many regard Sunday as the best day and it is also free.  There is also a dance at Le Cornemuse - a restaurant and dance club at Arleuf (20 miles from Saulieu on the Monday evening).  There is no public transport to this event.  For the full programme see the festival website.
