The 150 years of Deauville have strongly marked the Deauvillais and all those who visited the city in 2010. For its 160 years, the city rediscovers the dynamics of an anniversary that had made time, meeting and sharing its common thread . In addition to the planned moments of gathering and joy, in 2020, the inaugurations of two facilities that will mark Deauville for a long time will be added: the Franciscans and the Lookouts of the Presqu'île. They have in common that they existed from the very beginning of the City and open up to the public, 160 years after their creation, with new missions. After dedicating meeting and sharing time in 2010, the anniversary of the city's 160th anniversary, in 2020 will dedicate the places where it can now flourish and renew itself again and again.

THE BATH OF 160 YEARS

After some very invigorating exercises on pop rock tunes to warm up, the start is given at 12 noon.

Birthday cake at the association dinner

It is the biggest dinner of the year in Deauville with more than 1000 people present at each edition. The meeting is essential for associations that have made it their festive highlight of the year. This year everyone is blowing out the candles of 160st.

The intimate Deauville of ... fifteen brand new stories

To celebrate 160 years of Deauville, fifteen writers share their attachment to Deauville in a collection of fifteen unpublished texts, published by Mercure de France.
These authors offer us so many remarkable, intimate and unforgettable moments lived in Deauville. Memories, stories and testimonies, which cross these last fifty years, supported or accompanied by songs of film music and melodies, sometimes also linked with the illustrious ghosts of Deauville.
At the invitation of Deauville for his 160th birthday, Amandine Maissiat, selected a few fragments from these texts. On Saturday April 4, seated at the piano and accompanied by Nicolas Gabet, she sings, reads and echoes in music certain texts from this collection, in the presence of a large part of its authors.
