Carnival is the most popular cultural event a country can experience. – Jorde Amado, Brazilian writer, 1912 - 2001

The French Riviera's first winter event, the Carnival of Nice alone justifies a stay in Nice. It is world famous and attracts nearly a million visitors of all nationalities every year.

Carnival offers countless reasons to visit Nice. Far from grey skies, 100% fun, Nice, capital of the French Riviera, is to be savoured at this time of the year without moderation. Programming the Carnival of Nice means giving clients a chance to get their fill of excitement and good humour and take advantage of the atmosphere and riot of colour!

Special conditions for tourism professionals and groups -
In addition to all its festivities, Carnival offers a wonderful opportunity to discover Nice in winter: the mild climate, the luminosity of the sky and the art of living on the French Riviera will further enhance a programme that is already rich in confetti and excitement!



Nice Carnival 2018

Take your clients on the theatrical space odyssey of a lifetime with the Nice Carnival and its "King of Space" theme from 17 February to 3 March 2018

From 17 February to 3 March 2018, the Nice Carnival will be setting off on a journey that has captured the world's hearts and imaginations, fuelled by the exhilarating tales of Jules Verne or the iconic images of Georges Méliès.

This year's theme will also draw on real-life recent events that have made the news, such as the science and education mission led by French astronaut Thomas Pesquet or space news on a global scale: new solar systems being discovered day after day, the first sight-seeing trip around the moon planned before the end of 2018, and more.

Nice's observatory is responsible for the highest number of new planets discovered over the past century. With 2000 new double stars* to its name, the observatory in Nice has transformed into one of the world's leading hubs of information about the universe!

A theme to be explored to infinity - and beyond...
