The adventure of Un Été Au Havre began in 2017 on the occasion of the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the founding of the city and the port. This grandiose anniversary, celebrated over several months, welcomed more than two million visitors.
The event had a resounding impact on the territory: the artistic spirit conquered the inhabitants, traders, students and of course the curious who discovered this seaside destination with its unique charm. Widely acclaimed, A Summer In Le Havre has become a recurring event. Thus, in Le Havre, the summer season is the time for an ambitious rendezvous with art, heritage and culture, revitalized each year by new works of contemporary art that Un Summer Au Havre delivers to the public space from the end of June to mid-September.
