Several highlights marked the first day of this inaugural celebration of the history of the Grimaldi dynasty, including folk dances and cultural performances performed by the invited sites, the fighting of behourd, and also the traditional fire of Saint-Jean which allowed all the invited folk groups to associate themselves with the history of Monaco.

The first meeting also paid tribute to the Marquisate des Baux and the county of Carladès in honour of Hereditary Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella. The City of Menton, which was part of the Principality for five centuries, completed the list of guest sites.

The celebration continued on Sunday, June 24, on the Palace Square.
