fete de la musique

Fete du Port June 9, 2018 – Free.  One of my favorite local festivals with great food, music, visuals and fireworks.

Summer Nights Free Concert Series – From June 22, Free.  A wonderful all summer long series of free concerts.

Plus other Local Concerts all month long with Nice Music Live


Nice ChateauFete du Chateau Weekend  It’s back!  June 30-July 1, 2018  The only weekend of the year when you can go up to the Nice Chateau at night, for a fun music festival put on by… the Communist Party!  – Free


But besides music, here are some of my other favorite June events:

The first weekend of June, enjoy a winemaker’s open house in the nearby, award-winning vineyards of Bellet, just outside of Nice.  All weekend long, the winemakers throw open their doors, invite you in, and do tastings!



ironmanNice Ironman  June 24, 2018 – Free to watch!

An ultra-endurance race of insane proportions for mega-jocks, but we mere mortals can still watch!
