Expect the unexpected

Wondrous fireworks 

The fireworks of the 14th of July and of the closing night are two of the festival’s highlights. At nightfall, the music and bursts of light take the harbour and boats to a magical place. On the 14th of July access to the site will be free as from 10 p.m. so that everyone can share in the celebrations.

Nighttime parades

The majestic nighttime parades of the foreign fleets, chartered boats and tall ships light up the harbour and roadstead of Brest.

Every edition ends with the grand parade from Brest to Douarnenez with hundreds of boats taking to the open sea side by side.
