Nice Carnival 2021

The Nice Carnival "King of the Animals" is postponed to 2022

A must-see event for the City of Nice and the Nice Côte d'Azur Metropolis, the Nice Carnival is the 1st Carnival in France and one of the most famous in the world with the Carnivals of Rio and Venice. Every year it attracts hundreds of thousands of spectators, both French and international, resulting in nearly 30 million euros in economic spin-offs.

In view of the current health crisis and the attendance that such an event generates, the Nice Carnival "King of the Animals", initially scheduled from 13 to 27 February 2021, has been postponed to 2022.
