This is only a snapshot of what happens in Cannes throughout the year. There are many other small festivals and one-off celebrations that take place each year; we will endeavour to add these to our Events Calendar when we spot them.
NB. Times and dates may vary each year. Indeed, some years, the festivals may not run at all or be cancelled close to the dates of the event.
