Port of Cannes
Save the date: 29 June for the port of Cannes celebration
The Nice Côte d’Azur Chamber of Commerce and Industry warmly invites you to the 2019 edition of the port of Cannes celebration to be held on Saturday 29 June. In a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, local residents and tourists alike are invited to discover the traditions that characterise the port of Cannes and its unique heritage. A host of festivities will unfold from 19:00 onwards on the Pantiero esplanade.
What's on the agenda this year?
The evening event will be held in two parts, with street performances for all ages from 19:00 to 22:00. A broad range of entertainment will be offered, with stands run by associations (the Port of Cannes Nautical Club, the French Navy, and more), street artists, ferris wheels, merry-go-rounds and workshops for the little ones. Concerts will also be offered by local bands, including Ninety’s Story, whose music draws its inspiration from the 90s-style French touch, as well as the group Gipsy Prince, which gives an original twist to the greatest hits of all time thanks to its acoustic instruments.
The highlight of the evening will be the show “J’me voyais déjà” performed by Anne Carrère and produced by Gil Marsalla, scheduled for 22:00. This immensely successful show (over 300 performances in 50 countries and 1 million spectators) tells the story of Françoise, a young woman from Cannes who decides to set up home in Montmartre to live out her dream of becoming a famous artist. On the road to success, she meets various famous figures including Edith Piaf and Charles Aznavour, with whom she is destined to share an idyllic romance. Without giving too much away, this show will take you back in time and immerse you in the post-war atmosphere. Spectators are treated to a taste of the greatest cabarets of the period, against a backdrop of the most well-known French songs (by Edith Piaf, Joséphine Baker Jacques Brel and many others).
Finally, a catering area will be open for business throughout the evening. To make sure all tastes are catered for, a host of food trucks will be stationed along Pantiero Esplanade, to guarantee a laid-back, dance hall atmosphere. To top it off, for the first time a special gourmet section will be given pride of place on the floating pier: “L’ilot Pantiero fait sa cuisine cannoise” (Pantiero islet celebrates Cannes-style cuisine), in order to give our local specialities the attention they deserve.
Local heritage representatives and the CCI Nice Côte d’Azur would be delighted to see you at this unmissable event, 100% friendly and laid back!
