D-Day 75th Anniversary - 2019

Compiled by DDAY.CENTER, the most comprehensive list of events to remember D-Day and the Battle of Normandy

Welcome to DDAY.CENTER's dedicated website for events being held to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. Whilst most events take place in France, remembrance services and other events occur in the UK, United States and Canada.

Each year, thousands of people descend on Normandy in France to pay homage to the soldiers, sailors and airmen who took part in D-Day, Operation Overlord and the Battle of Normandy. Veterans and their families, political figures, re-enactors, military vehicle enthusiasts and thousands of other men, women and children pay tribute to the those who fought to liberate Europe and remember those who never returned.

2019 marks the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Normandy and the D-Day Landings

The organisers of D-Day events include local authorities, museums, private clubs and larger organisations, and there is no single official listing encompassing all commemorations. Several years ago we decided to compile our own guide using numerous publicly available sources with the intention of providing our visitors with as comprehensive a resource as possible.

As the information provided here is based on third-party sources we regret that we cannot be held responsible for cancelled events or incorrect details. Wherever possible we try to include the contact details for the organisations responsible for arranging each event. As new events are confirmed we will add the details to this site, so if you know of a #DDAY75 event taking place that we've not listed here then please get in touch and let us know.

You can also download our free PDF version of the D-Day 75th Anniversary events listing to make it easier to print, share or view offline.

The Normandy Memorial Trust was created in 2016 to bring to fruition the desire to have a British Normandy Memorial, honouring all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in Normandy. The Trust is cooperating closely with the French planning authorities to secure the necessary building permissions for the memorial. As soon as these are in place, work on the site will commence, with the aim of making as much progress as possible in time for the 75th anniversary of D-Day on 6th June 2019.

The core memorial has been financed by the British government with £20m from the LIBOR fund, but the project still needs to develop educational and other facilities. The memorial will stand on ground at Ver-sur-Mer overlooking Gold Beach, and will record the names of all those under British command who lost their lives during the Battle of Normandy. In order to help fund the remaining components of British Normandy Memorial, Trust are also seeking donations from the public.

In 2018, DDAY.CENTER was proud to sponsor the Normandie World War II International Film Festival organised by the World War II Foundation. The event will be taking place again in 2019, along with the associated Band of Brothers Actors' Reunion. The 2019 reunion is intended to be the last such event and is tag-lined "A Final Jump Into Normandy".

Various events, including both ticketed and free-to-enter, will be taking place as part of the Film Festival, including a red-carpet event, a VIP dinner, special film screenings and a free concert in front of the Salle du Théâtre in Carentan. Signing sessions with the Band of Brothers actors will also be taking place at the D-Day Experience Museum, the Utah Beach Museum and at the Normandy Victory Museum.

"Ok, Let's go!" - the immortal words of General Dwight D. Eisenhower were spoken at Southwick House, setting in motion the greatest combined operation of all time.

Step back in time at the Southwick Village D-Day Revival. For the sixth consecutive year, the small Hampshire village of Southwick will be transformed back to 1944, as the whole village puts their heart and soul into the spirit of living history.

Optional tours to the famous Southwick House D-Day map room will be available, but book early as these are very popular. The Battle of Britain Memoral Flight, walking history tours, history talks, Tiger Moth aircraft display, period funfair, wartime vehicles, 1940's school lesson, sing-alongs, swing dance lessons and live music are just some of the events planned for 2019.

Each year at Conneaut, Ohio on the shore of Lake Erie, the largest Second World War re-enactment/living history event in the United States takes place. D-Day Conneaut is free to the public and includes living history displays, mock battles, vintage aircraft, an LCVP "Higgins Boat" and 1940's "USO-style" musical entertainment.

The organisers are keen to involve the real heroes of the Second World War, and in 2017 the event hosted around 150 veterans.

Since 1999 this event has been developing and expanding, and now features some 1,500 re-enactors from across the US and Canada. Allied and German troops, plus French Resistance and 1940's civilians are all represented, with pre-invasion encampments of Allied and German forces and their tactical support elements. There are also historical exhibits.

Certain to be some of the most spectacular events for 2019 - and almost certainly never to be repeated - are being organised by Daks Over Normandy. Probably not since the Second World War will so many C-47 Skytrain (or "Dakota", as the British called the aircraft) have shared the same piece of sky. More than 30 aircraft from several countries have so far committed to the project.

From 2nd to 5th June the Daks Over Normandy event will be based at Duxford Airfield in the United Kingdom, and from 5th to 9th June from Caen Carpiquet Airport in Normandy. Both locations were carefully chosen because of their facilities and their infrastructure and because of their Second World War heritage. For the latest information or to donate, please visit the Daks Over Normandy official website.

6th June 1944 - D-Day

After almost five years of war and following many months of planning, preparation and trainnig, the Allied forces under the overall command of American General Dwight D. Eisenhower, landed on the beaches of Hitler's "Fortress Europe".

Paratroopers and gliderborne infantry were the first to touch French soil in the early hours of the morning on the eastern and western flanks of the invasion area. Several hours later as the sun began to rise, an enormous armada of ships disembarked its cargo of fighting men onto five beaches across a 50-mile front of the Normandy coastline.

By the day's end, 156,000 troops had been landed and a tentative but strengthening beachhead established. A door in Hitler's much-vaunted "Atlantic Wall" had been well and truly kicked open.


Our thanks to digital colourist Marina Amaral for allowing us to use her excellent colourised image of these two 101st Airborne Division paratroopers. Check out her excellent new book "The Colour of Time".

Operation Overlord

Operation Neptune was the codename for the assault phase of the Normandy landings, whilst the objective of Operation Overlord was to create a secure lodgement in France from which further operations to liberate Europe and defeat Nazi Germany could be launched.

The Battle of Normandy began with the Allied assault on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, or more precicesly with the dropping of paratroopers and glider forces in the early hours of the morning of 6th June 1944.

The Battle culminated towards the end of August with the encirclement and capture of around 150,000 German soldiers at Falaise, and with the Allied forces crossing the River Seine on their march towards Paris. The War was still far from over, but the end was now clearly in sight, and Hitler's days were numbered.

Events commemorating the anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy usually take place between April and September. Click on the links below to jump straight to the event listing for the chosen month. We compile this event listing from multiple sources, so check back for updates.

During the late fall of 1944, with Paris secure and ultimate victory inevitable, a football game reminiscent of America's Superbowl was planned for Christmas Day. The 101st Airborne Division paratroopers, who had already seen hard fighting in Normandy and the Netherlands, were stationed in Champagne, near Reims, the place of General Eisenhower's Allied headquarters. According to historian Stephen Ambrose, divisions held tryouts for the Champagne Bowl and practiced three hours a day. However, the game never took place, as the soldiers were recalled to duty in response to the German offensive in the Ardennes, and the 10,000 men of the 101st marched north in mid-December to the Battle of the Bulge.

2019 D-Day 75th Anniversary Event in the USA Pittsburgh, PA

  • 1830 - 2000hrs
    In the United States, we tend to think of "D-Day" as an inherently American undertaking. This overlooks the important contributions by the British Commonwealth. Three of the five beaches (Juno, Sword, and Gold) were assigned to British or Canadian divisions, and the Royal Navy provided the vast bulk of warships. Moreover, the Allies spent years encamped in Great Britain preparing for the cross-Channel invasion. This lecture by Dr. John C. Mitcham of Duquesne University and Britsburgh's History Society will examine Britain's role in the Normandy Campaign, from the planning and operations to its impact on British Society. Dr. Mitcham is an Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of History at Duquesne. The 1 hour lecture will be followed by a 30 minute Q&A session. Coffee service included. This presentation is complimentary with paid museum admission.
