What's on in Nice September 2017

Music, colour & classic cars are the themes for September

Summer is almost over... but not quite finished yet! Restaurants and beach clubs will still have their doors open, Jazz au Chateau continues in Cagnes sur Mer and there is a whole host of art and culture in the heart of Nice, so it's a great time to visit.

The 2017 summer exhibition at the newly refurbished Galerie Lympia brings a wonderful collection of works by artist and sculptor Alberto Giacometti. Some 50 works created shortly before his death in 1966 will be on display this summer, showcasing the art he produced between 1960 and 1965.

Starting and finishing on the historic Promenade des Anglais, the Jean Behra Historic Rally welcomes some beautiful old rally and sports cars to the French Riviera. This rally goes through some of the most scenic roads in the world, even crossing the national parks of Mercantour and Queyras. It is only open for cars that are over 30 years old, so expect some beauties!

Across France mid-September brings with it the annual European Heritage Days. Exceptional locations around France, including Antibes, will be open to visit on the Journées du Patrimoine. Museums, churches, and galleries all open their doors to the public for a weekend of celebration and the event has become increasingly popular over the years.

Friday nights in neighbouring Cagnes sur Mer will continue to host their summer season of jazz concerts throughout September. Jazz au Chateau offers an atmospheric venue for jazz trios, vocalists, and gypsy swing bands. Free to attend and a shuttle bus to take you there from the central station at Cagnes...how can you say no?

Colour hits the Cote d'Azur on the 23rd September with Blackout Colourful. This electro festival combines DJs, dancers, acrobats and plenty of colour! Special cannons will fire out more than 5000 litres of coloured paint to cover an audience of people who are dancing to electro music. If this sounds like your kind of thing - then don't miss out!!

We'll be thinking of our stomachs by the end of the month as the Fete de la Gastronomie rolls into the neighbouring town of Cagnes sur Mer. Markets, workshops, demonstrations and plenty of tasting! Ever wanted to learn how to make a French macaron? Also there will  be 'Gourmet' Menus' available in over twenty restaurants in town over the weekend.

The month ends with a classical touch as the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Opera de Nice take to the stage and perform works by Gonard, Romberg and Chostakovitch. This is a two-hour classical music concert performed in the wonderful Opera de Nice venue on the Promenade des Anglais in the old town of Nice.
