Fantastic Fun for All Families, Friends and Game Enthusiasts

Featured in:

Annually in February, in the Palais des Festivals, over 170,000 enthusiasts come together for the three day Games Festival.

There are exhibitions of well-loved classic games plus newly developed cutting edge games, board games and simulations. This is a fun way to spend a day of exploration and adventure into different worlds. Whether you go alone, with friends or family...you will be welcome in the circle of great champions. No need to be a hardcore gamer, even if you're a casual player, embark on a great experience where young and old alike can share the fun.

From traditional games to video games, the wealth of activities available to you in a space nearly 30,000 m² right in the heart of the Palais des Festivals and Congresses of the City of Cannes.

Every year, Cannes awards the label for best game of the year chosen from the new French market: based on creativity, diversity, mechanisms and rules. Plus you can meet the authors, illustrators and publishers of your favourite games around demonstrations, signings and tournaments. This festival offers many surprises...
