From classical concerts to dance parties on the beach, traditional festivals to trendy art exhibitions there is something for all interests and budgets.

My top 5 picks for free Cannes events:

  • Festival d’Art Pyrotechnique (free fireworks displays – various dates)
  • Cine-Quartier (free open-air cinema screenings – various dates and locations)
  • Anniversaire de la Libération de Cannes (WWI commemoration with military parade,  ball and fireworks – 24 August)
  • Pages a la Plage (book lending library at Plage Macé – until the end of August.  Note: €10 refundable bond/caution must be given to borrow books)
  • Night market at Cannes Vieux Port (Thursday evenings)
