The highlight of Valbonne’s summer season is the Rue(z) & Vous festival for street artists (4th to 8th July).
What? Expect classic comedic acts from mimes and clowns, theatrical productions, poets and painters, artistic cyclist Jessica Arpin all the way from Brazil, dance pieces and a very unusual football match from Moroccan troupe Colokolo. Other interesting events in the picturesque village include: English-language concerts and film projections at the Hôtel de Ville (21st and 28th July, 5th August); the Best of Quincy Jones by Nice’s Azur Big Band (3rd August); the Fête de la Saint Roch (14th to 16th August); and a whole range of art exhibitions at the Salle Saint Esprit and Ancienne Mairie.
Don’t forget the Art Shopping Festival from 8th to 16th September, which combines modern and contemporary art sales with countless artistic performances, as well as the weekly Provençal market on Fridays and flea market on Sundays.
When? All summer long
