The coast will be ablaze with synchronised fireworks at the major D-Day landing sites, there will be a giant picnic on Omaha Beach, Liberation balls, and several hundred soldiers will parachute into the air over Sainte-Mère-Eglise. The festivities will be in full swing throughout the year, particularly around 6 June. It's a great way to join in this spirit of fraternity. 


The D-Day Festival Normandy

It will run from 1 June 2024 to 16 June 2024 along the entire coastline of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.

Parachuting, parades, concerts, historical re-enactments, fireworks, exhibitions, projections, etc. The event features almost 100 tourist, popular, cultural and festive events.
