Visit the colourful festival Carnaval de Nice

Travel by motorhome to the south of France and visit Nice. This is where the festival Carnaval de Nice will be held from 17 February 2024 to 3 March 2024. This festival already has a great history as it has been organised since 1873!

The carnival in Nice is the biggest carnival in the world after Rio de Janeiro and Venice. It is a parade where artists from all over the world participate, with large floats, big floating heads, street art and music groups. The parades are opened by the floats of the so-called King and Queen of Carnival. From history, the king is the leader and the queen is married to it. The other floats that follow are the so-called subjects. Most parades are organised in the evening so that the lights on the various floats look most beautiful. Several artists participate in this carnival and a new theme is chosen every year. The theme for 2024 is K-Pop! The carnival will end on 2 March 2024 with the burning of "the king" and his fireworks. This event is free to visit.

The Carnaval de Nice is a great magical event that you should definitely not miss if you are in this region in February. Just be aware, tickets must be bought in advance for the parades.

You can stay overnight with a motorhome near Nice in the town of Saint-Laurent-du-Var. It is about a 15-minute drive from Nice and staying at this motorhome stopover is in fact free!
