Find Olympic events close to home with fun interactive map 

A host of exceptional sport-related programmes and events have been launched in France in the run up to the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer, and thanks to the French Ministry of Sport, they can be easily found using a clever interactive map to guide the way. 

France’s Ministry of Sports and the Olympic and Paralympic Games, under the auspices of La Grande Cause Nationale – the government backed scheme to promote physical and sports activity in 2024, has announced a huge schedule of events and activities throughout the country geared toward getting people up and moving in this special Olympic year.

“These Games, which are the most decentralised in history with events in 73 host communities and a torch relay crossing 450 cities in France, are truly the Games for all French people. We are proud to present today all the activities and territorial events which will allow us to amplify this promise,” said Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, Minister of Sports and the Olympic and Paralympic Games, in a statement.

The government has dedicated €6 million to promoting these activities and has even put out an easy-to-use interactive map pinpointing all the experiences by location, with information including the organisers, brief descriptions, contact info and links, as well as specifics on the stages of the torch relay, cultural events and from June, the 2024 Club zones, where people can gather for live screenings of the Games, sporting programmes and other Olympic-related events. 

Locally in the Alpes-Maritimes, there are festivities and events from now until September in Beausoleil, Nice, Antibes, and Valbonne, with others a bit further down the coast in Frejus, Saint-Raphaël and Saint-Tropez.
