Summer Evenings: Free Shows In The Alpes-maritimes.
Every summer, the Summer Evenings turn the Alpes-Maritimes department into an open-air theater. Hundreds of shows for young and old and for all tastes are held in the municipalities of the department. The programming is eclectic and completely free!
"The cultural event of the summer"
Since their creation in 1996, the Summer Evenings of the General Council have been one of the must-attend events of the summer on the French Riviera. These evenings, free and accessible to all, allow residents and tourists to have a good time with family or friends.
Each year, more than 300,000 people are present, proof of the quality of the shows offered. In total, more than 2 million spectators have attended over 5000 shows thanks to this initiative of the General Council of Alpes-Maritimes.
These summer evenings are an opportunity to:
- promote culture everywhere and for everyone
- offer a showcase for the local artistic scene
- invite the public to rediscover the cities and villages of the department.
