Festival of Europe 2014: Join us on 10 May!

The Festival of Europe is a celebration of Robert Schuman's famous speech. He delivered it on 9 May 1950 and it was to be the impulse that set the creation of the European Union in motion.

This year's anniversary is particularly important, as it will take place 2 weeks before the European elections of 25 May.

Luxembourg will celebrate the Festival of Europe with a European village, and the Court of Justice of the European Union will also open its doors to the public.
