  • The 150th Nice Carnival in 2023 

To celebrate its 150th anniversary, the Nice Carnival is pulling out all the stops. Dive into the imaginary world of the Carnival King on the theme of the King of the World's Treasures. On the agenda: performers in costume, floats, music, confetti, dance, flowers and more flowers! The biggest highlights of the Nice Carnival are the illuminated Carnival Corsi (processions of floats, giant puppets, big heads, street art performers etc.) and flower battles. The Nice Carnival is the 3rd biggest in the world, after Venice and Rio. The Côte d’Azur's biggest event is always a treat for children and adults alike. Are you ready to be blown away?

Did you know? The French author Alphonse Karr is behind the flower battle. He loved flowers, lived in Nice and wanted to put on a show where people threw bouquets to celebrate. That's the story behind the first flower battle on the Promenade des Anglais in 1876!
