Featured in: | Updated

A popular Niçoise tradition; in the shade of olive trees, each year, the culture and language of Nice are celebrated in the gardens of Cimiez Arena: like their parents and grandparents, family and friends will share songs, dances, music and traditional culinary specialities. 

Celebrate with family at the wonderful Jardin des Arenes de Cimiez from 10:00 until 19:00 on Monday 1st May and then each Sunday throughout May. There will be numerous musical entertainments, children's workshops and shows and of course the election of the Queen of the May.

There will also be celebrations with music and food in certain areas across the city during this time:
