Events, Exhibitions and Festivals in Normandy
Normandy has something to offer tourists all through the year and this year is even more special with both the celebrations for the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings in June and the World Equestrian Games in August/September. These are far from the only events on this year and here is a taste of some of the varied events, exhibitions and festivals waiting for everyone who is in Normandy this June.
