Nice is celebrating Europe Day

The City of Nice is celebrating Europe Day from Tuesday, May 9th to Saturday, May 14th, 2023.

Since October 1st, 2021, Nice has been hosting the Centre Europe Direct Nice Côte d’Azur, which is the information center supported by the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis and certified by the European Commission.

Its mission is to inform and raise awareness among citizens, civil society, and local mayors about the European Union, its functioning, its actions, and its financing.

Since its creation, the Centre Europe Direct Nice Côte d’Azur and the City of Nice have met thousands of Niçois and residents of the territory. More than just a place, it is a whole dynamic that has been initiated to promote the vitality of Europe in our territory.

Events associated with Europe Day in Nice include:

Nice Europe Day, the Village of Europe, cinema, the solidarity restaurant, meetings with the public, the escape game, and “When Grandpa and Grandma Tell About Europe” are just some of the events that will be organized during this celebration.

Nice Europe Day, the Village of Europe, is a family-friendly and festive event that brought together more than 7,000 people during its first edition in 2022. This year, it will take place on Saturday, May 13th at the Jardin Albert 1er and the Théâtre de Verdure. The event will feature an institutional space with information booths on the concrete actions of the European Union in the territory. Two round-table discussions will be held to discuss current European affairs. Finally, the Nice Europe Day Concert will start at 7pm with three concerts featuring local artists: Le Môme, Ninety’s Story, and Linh.

Cinema is also highlighted during this celebration of Europe. As part of the LUX Audience Award, awarded by the European Parliament, five films will be screened for free during this week-long celebration. Debates will follow some of the screenings.

On May 11th at 7pm, the Europe Direct Centre Nice Côte d’Azur will host a quiz on Europe at the solidarity restaurant of FACE06.
