INFO 03/31/2020
Dear friends,
Pursuant to government directives, we are forced to cancel the 2020 edition of the International Bridge Festival of the Bassin d'Arcachon, with no possibility of postponement to the second half.
However, we can already announce that the 2021 edition will take place from April 26 to May 2, 2021.

Thanks for your understanding
The FIBBA team


Welcome to the third edition of the FIBBA.
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.
The FIBBA is nowrecognized by the FFB, which has registered for the season 2019-2020 in its Challenge des Festivals, as well as Biarritz, Deauville, La Baule, La Grande Motte, Paris and Juan les Pins. It will therefore be endowed with Performance Points and will benefit from the allocation provided for in the Challenge.

From Monday, 27th to Tuesday 28th at 3.30PM: Mixed Pairs (women pairs accepted).
From Wednesday, 29th to Thursday, 30th at 3.30PM: Patton.
On Thursday, 30th at 7.00PM : See evening
On Friday, 1st at 8.00PM, on Saturday, 2nd at 3.30PM, on Sunday, 3rd at 2.00PM: Open pairs.

Parking info: we will provide players during the festival of tickets, to pose with the first parking ticket of the maximum duration of 2 hours, to allow participants to have almost free every day of the festival. Attention, you will have to take a parking ticket daily.

Info strike: we will make available to players during the Festival shuttles from the airport and train station if necessary. Do not hesitate to contact us if necessary.
