The next edition will take place from February 17th to March 3rd, 2018on theme "King of Space".
From a simple disguise to plastic surgery, from manipulation to celebrity press & the Carnival is no longer the only realm of fancy dress and device in all its forms, represented in a modern and outrageous fantasy...
All the Carnival parades will be located on the new place Massena and around the garden Albert 1st and the Flower parades will take place along the Promenade des Anglais or sea-front and will feature numerous innovations ...
The carnival takes its inspiration from themes that are often traditional. It is the world of fantasy, parading mythic and symbolic characters, while still keeping in touch with current events.
The Carnival King accompanies the 1st parade, and closes the last by parading alone, escorted by his "executioners". He will be set on fire, according to tradition, on the day of Mardi Gras, on a pyre set up on the beach. The festival ends with a magnificent fireworks display over the Baie des Anges.
