Everything you need to know about the upcoming Trott’n’Roll event in Monaco


The Flavien Foundation’s annual Trott’n’Roll event is back later this month with a renewed drive to raise funds for charity all while having plenty of fun.  

Back in 2014, brain cancer took the life of eight-year-old Flavien Maccario. Since then, his father Denis has made it his personal mission to stop any other child from suffering this tragic fate. The grieving parent, in tribute to his young son, also created the Flavien Foundation, Monaco’s first charity association that’s wholly dedicated to fighting paediatric cancers and other rare childhood diseases. The organisation puts on several events each year, with one of the most popular being the upcoming Trott’n’Roll.  


Trott’n’Roll, now in its ninth year, runs from 9am to 6pm on Saturday 16th September and asks participants to head to the Jardins d’Apolline on the Allée Lazare Sauvaigo with any two, three or four wheeler of their choice.  

All day long, the event will feature entertainment for all ages, including a skate park, games, stands, a tombola and cosplayers. There is also a “One Rider One Child” parade starting at 2.30pm that takes a spin around the Principality. Monaco’s firefighters will also be abseiling down the garden’s facades! 

Food and drink will be available on-site.  


This year’s focus will be to remind people of the importance of donating blood, as well about bone marrow donations. The charity association will be supported in this task by representatives from the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace and the Nice University Hospital.  

All participants and guests are asked to wear orange, the official colour of the Flavien Foundation, in another show of support for this admirable charity.
