What’s on in Normandy in 2019

Check out the major events of 2019

75th Anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy

The memory lives on! 6th June 2019 marks the start of the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings and the Battle of Normandy and with it, a momentous occasion to celebrate peace, liberty and reconciliation. Throughout summer, a rich and unprecedented programme of events will be put together to bring the memory of this period of world history to life, all while emphasizing the spirit of hope. The anniversary will be commemorated with military parades, firework displays, airdrops, giant picnics, concerts and military camp re-enactments.

 

Rouen Armada

Come and marvel at the world’s finest Tall Ships during this huge festival on the banks of the River Seine in the host city of Rouen. Celebrating its 30th anniversary, this key event in the international sailing calendar will bring together visitors from near and far with thousands of French and foreign sailors from 6 to 16 June. Over thirty magnificent ships, along with military boats and even submarines from all around the world, will line Rouen’s quaysides for ten days of celebrations, finishing with the famous parade along the River Seine.

Women’s World Football Cup in Le Havre

The excitement is building for the next major event in the international football calendar. From 7 June to 7 July, twenty-four national teams, including France as the host nation, will compete to win the Women’s World Football Cup in 52 matches across nine host cities, including Le Havre right here in Normandy. The city’s brilliantly blue Stade Océane will be hosting seven games, including a Quarter Final on Thursday 27 June.

 

Norman Rockwell Exhibition at the Caen Memorial

In 2019, the Caen Memorial Museum will exhibit over 70 paintings and illustrations by Norman Rockwell, one of America’s most popular press illustrators and painters. This will be the first time Rockwell’s work has been displayed anywhere in France. The museum will also welcome a new cinema where visitors can experience the impact of war in Europe through a 17-minute 360° film that uses original archived footage.

 

The Game of Thrones Tapestry comes to Bayeux

The Game of Thrones Tapestry is one of the most ambitious and beautiful piece of Game of Thrones artwork in existence. Commissioned by Tourism Ireland to draw tourists to Belfast, it has been hanging in the city’s Ulster Museum since July 2017. Each panel of the tapestry depicts scenes from each of the 67 episodes yet aired, each done it the style of the world-famous Bayeux Tapestry. From September to end December 2019, the GOT Tapestry will cross the Channel and will be on display in Bayeux, close to the same site as the original one!

 

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

In Normandy the show never stops!
