The festivities ‘A Summer in Le Havre 2017’ take place from May 27 to November 5 2017. It’s the right time to look more in details at the festivities’ programm ‘Un Été au Havre 2017’ which will attract a record attendance in our beautiful city of Le Havre (Nearly 2 million visitors expected)…

Historical context: 500 years after the foundation of our port on 7 February 1517 and our city on 8 October 1517 by King François the 1st (also called Francis the first), our city celebrates this year 2017 its 500th spring! You know that there is only one occasion to celebrate its 500 years, so the Mayor of the city of Le Havre decided to orchestrate large festivities under the french code name ‘Un Été au Havre’ (in english: A summer in Le Havre 2017)
The cultural program ‘A Summer in Le Havre 2017’ was conceived by the artistic director Jean Blaise, who has been recognized for amazing recent events such as the 1st edition of Nuit Blanche in 2002 in Paris or the Estuaire Festival in 2007 in Nantes .

What happens during those festivities? A beautiful festival of worldwide artists, designers, actors… The triumphant return of the Royal de Luxe giants, monumental monuments like the containers catena, popular parades and the world’s largest sailing ships… A very rich content, already available on the official website of the event ‘A Summer in Le Havre 2017’. But notice that on our website, we will mainly take the time to put forward the best appointments that you must not miss! Our peaceful Porte Océane promises to be amazing during this summer 2017…

Small confidence: In addition to our daily Bee Le Havre City Tour 2017, this summer we will valorise the artistic program ‘A Summer in Le Havre 2017’ and we think that you will like it… Promise, we will talk about it very quickly together on our Le Havre City Guide and on our Facebook 😉
