What's On in Antibes October 2018

The summer is well and truly over. The days are shorter and there is a nip in the air during the evening that means that those nights that we can enjoy dining outside are numbered.

However, for some, it is the most charming time of year and can certainly be in the running for the most beautiful season. The red leaves on the trees, the golden glow of the brush and those sunsets that turn the world the pink and purple, this might just be Antibes at its best.

There's still lots to do in the French Riviera in October. Here's just a list with some of the events taking place in Antibes this month.

Design & Arts Weekend

Every October, the iconic Pinède Gould in Juan les Pins becomes a centre for innovation and creation over a weekend. In 2018, the theme is "Around the Table" so there will be everything from tableware to kitchenware and even edible sculptures created by Dorothée Selz. The place to find original, unique objects.

Hit the Shops


Saying farewell to the beach and the seaside the Festi'PAL brings all things paddle to the coast of Juan les Pins and Antibes. Celebrating offshore paddle sports, watch people compete at SUP, canoeing and beach sprints and polo or give it a go yourself. If getting into the water isn't your thing then you can still enjoy the onshore entertainment and the festival village.

Jammin' Juan Jazz Festival

Juan les Pins is famous for its annual Jazz Festival, the Jazz a Juan. Now we can enjoy an autumn festival with the same calibre of international jazz musicians. The third edition of the Jammin' Juan Jazz Festival is due to take place over four days from October 24th to 27th 2018. A total of 27 bands, a hundred musicians and four incredible days of jazz.

Book a Hotel

Salon du Vin et de la Gastronomie

The South of France is renowned for its good quality wine and Antibes is not one to miss out on a party. Put those two together and you get the Salon du Vin et de la Gastronomie, a food and wine event that celebrates the very best of French produce. Visitors can enjoy the best wines and discover the culinary specialties of various regions.

Book a Restaurant

Wine in Antibes


Throughout the month, there are plenty of markets and second-hand 'brocantes' to be enjoyed. Antibes is well known for its traditional, Provencal-style market and this will go on throughout the autumn, so don't forget to grab some hot, tasty socca and plenty of bread, cheese and wine for those autumn picnics.
