Things to Do in June in and around Nice
June is the month for fab and funky music festivals in Nice…
Fete de la Musique June 21, Free. A France-wide outdoor musical free-for-all, held every year on the night of the summer Solstice… plus this year there is a massive musical pre-fest, on the Prom on Saturday the 20th.
Local Concerts with Nice Music Live
The Running of the Sheep – Free
On the Sunday that the bergers walk their 1000 sheep from their lowland winter home up to the mountains for the summer, they block all roads along the way. Check out the yearly transhumance at Roubion Village (accessible by the Vallee de la Tinee).
