at Arcachon Congress from April 16th to 22nd 2018

This International Festival was born first of a municipal will, to make Arcachon an international bridge place like Biarritz, Le Touquet or Juan les Pins.
For this, it has been created an independent management association, called FIBBA: International Bridge Festival of the Arcachon Bay, managed by local actors, directly involved in the operation of the local and regional bridge.
An experienced Festival director has been appointed.
Today, with the support of the City's services, a dynamic team is in place.

From Wednesday, 18th to Thursday, 19th at 3.30PM: Patton.
On Thursday, 19th: Sea evening.
On Friday, 20th at 8;00PM, on Saturday, 21st at 3.30PM, on Sunday, 22nd at 2.00PM: Open pairs.
