D-Day Festival Normandy - Event in Sainte-Mère-Église

Each year, between late May and mid-June, the D-Day landing beaches host many events in tribute to the Allied soldiers who liberated France on 6 June 1944.

Developed by the tourist offices of the D-Day beaches, the D-Day Festival programme is rich and varied and offers daily activities including guided hikes, commemorative gatherings, fireworks, parachute drops in period attire, historical re-enactments, bagpipers' parades, an exhibition and parade of military and civilian vehicles, tours of the installations and German bunkers, concerts and various activities on the theme of liberation.

A total of over 80 events take place at Bayeux, Longues-sur-Mer, Arromanches, Sainte-Mère-Église, Carentan, Utah, Isigny-sur-Mer and Omaha. On 6 June, an important commemorative day takes place at Arromanches, with a ceremony in tribute to the veterans and a big air show with a parade of vintage aircraft.
