It really is festival season here in the Principality, with everything from a red carpet TV event to a street art celebration and the brand-new thought-provoking Green Shift Festival lined up for the coming month.
Monaco loves a bit of urban street art. Artist Mr One Teas, who will be attending this year’s UPAINT Festival alongside many other international artists from across the genre, is a firm favourite on the Principality’s scene and will be showcasing his talents once again between 4th and 7th June. There will also be plenty of public events down on the Promenade du Larvotto, so grab a can and get involved. Click here for more information.
Tweens and teens from 12 to 17 years of age can get into the holiday spirit a little earlier than usual this summer with the annual Splash Party at the Stade Nautique Rainier III from 2pm to 6pm on 7th June. Tickets are €20 for Monaco school-going residents and €25 for non-residents attending with a local friend. Drinks and full access to the pool, diving board and inflatables is included.
Brand-new in Monaco for 2023 is the Green Shift Festival, which is set to take place over four consecutive nights from 7th to 10th June. Each evening, between 7pm and 8.30pm and out in the fresh sea air on the Promenade du Larvotto, important green and environmental topics that range from the philosophical to the generational will be presented through short films, performances and open discussions in the presence of experts. Find the full programme here.
