Check out the major events of 2018

Dieppe Kite Festival

The end of the summer season in Normandy will be marked by the 20th edition of Dieppe’s famous kite festival, which is the biggest event of its kind in the world! From 8 to 16 September, hundreds of kites big and small will fi­ll the air, making for a magical and unforgettable family experience. Held on Europe’s largest seafront lawns, this free event brings together over 1000 professionals from 5 continents with half a million visitors!


Calvados Experience

New for 2018! Located in the heart of the picturesque town of Pont-l’Evêque and covering 2500 square metres, this new site explores the history of Calvados, the traditional Norman drink, with a sensory experience through a recreational and educational visit, finishing with a tasting of course!


Normandy: gateway to the Ryder Cup

The Ryder Cup is one of the top international events for golfing enthusiasts. Bringing together the best players from the American and European continents, the 2018 competition will take place at the Golf National in Guyancourt, near Paris, from 28 to 30 September. Over 60,000 spectators and several million viewers are expected to follow the event worldwide. Within just an hour from the course, golfers can reach one of Normandy’s most famous tourist destinations: Claude Monet’s house and gardens in Giverny, or Le Vaudreuil golf course, near Rouen, designed by Fred Hawtree. For those who want to perfect their swing by the sea, Deauville’s four 18-hole golf courses are only two hours’ drive away.


The memory lives on

In 2019, all eyes will be on the Landing Beaches and the sites of the Battle of Normandy for the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. In the meantime, many festivities will be held this year, including the annual D-Day Normandy Festival which will take place from 26 May to 10 June and the second edition of WWII International Film Festival from 1 to 4 June.

And don’t forget the numerous music festivals and food festivals.

In Normandy the show never stops!
