The Olympic Torch Relay in Bordeaux

A key tradition of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Torch Relay will pass through Bordeaux in 2024. While it will be lit in Greece on 16 April, the Torch will begin its journey in France, in Marseille, on 8 May, before arriving in Bordeaux on Thursday 23 May 2024.

Before arriving in Bordeaux, the Torch will make stops in a number of surrounding towns: Saint-Emilion, Libourne, Le Bouscat, Mérignac, Pessac, Lormont and Cenon. As the 14th stopover, Bordeaux is planning a grand welcome at La Cité du Vin, the world totem dedicated to wine and a symbol of local identity. A number of events are also planned along the route, and a celebration in honour of the last torchbearer will be held in the Place des Quinconces.
