Fete de Mai

Various venues around Nice

Literally translated as “festival of May”, this event commemorates the history of 3 towns: Gesves (May Day), Hamois and Ciney (Trails of Art in Condroz Famenne), with music, exhibitions, food and kid’s entertainment.

Artists from around the world are invited to submit works to the festival, which are then exhibited all year round. As well as art and entertainment, visitors to the event can also take part in various guided wildlife walks. Taking place every weekend throughout the month of May, some of the performances are ticketed but most events are free.
