The theme of the weekend of events in May is Remember and Celebrate and a mix of
traditional and new events are planned.
Deputy Mike O'Hara said: "The annual celebrations are an opportunity to remember
the hardships of the Occupation and the joy of liberation."
The day will also see a traditional market, cavalcade and live music.
For the 65th anniversary of Guernsey's liberation a
choir of 1,200 voices has been billed as the flagship event.
