What's on in Antibes September 2019

Summer is almost over but not quite finished yet. Restaurants and beach clubs in Antibes still have their doors open and the town is filled with art, both old and new.

Here are just some of our favourite events taking place in this Riviera town in September.

Lerins Islands swim

At the beginning of September, you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the sea. Well, actually, it's more of a long open-water swim. The annual Lerins Islands swim is a popular local event and a must-do if you are a keen swimmer. Professionals and amateurs are invited to take part in the 1.5km crossing between the islands of Sainte-Marguerite and Saint-Honorat. If you'd rather stay dry, you can book a boat trip to visit these natural paradises.

Jazz au Chateau

Friday nights in neighbouring Cagnes sur Mer will continue to host their summer season of jazz concerts in September. Jazz au Chateau offers an atmospheric venue for jazz trios, vocalists and gypsy swing bands. In September, you'll get the chance to see Paris Swing, who play French chansons from the 1920s to the 1970s, and La Veille au Soir, a gypsy jazz trio. Free to attend, there's a shuttle bus (number 44) to take you there from the central station at Cagnes... how can you say no?

Pottery market

Antibes is well known for its pottery and artists studios line the old walls of the town. For the weekend of September 21st and 22nd, there will be stalls where you can buy, enjoy and learn more about the art and craft of pottery. The Pottery Market is an annual event that brings together around 30 professional potters and ceramicists to the heart of Antibes, giving you the chance to pick up some special hand-made items to take home to family and friends, or maybe just for yourself.

European Heritage Days

Mid-September brings with it the annual European Heritage Days. Exceptional locations all around France, including Antibes, will be open to visitors on these Journées du Patrimoine. Museums, churches and galleries all open their doors to the public for a weekend of celebrations in an event that has become increasingly popular over the years.

Festival International d'Art Sacre

Bringing some tradition to the month, the Festival International d'Art Sacre celebrates chamber music and sacred voice recitals. Including performances from choirs, orchestras and soloists, this festival will also bring a number of art exhibitions to the town. Exceptional concerts will take place in the Cathedral of Antibes and the Saint-Bernardin church.

Grande Braderie

On September 27th, shops all across Juan les Pins will be offering their best discounts on the streets of this town. The Grande Braderie, or Large Clearance Sale, is the best chance to grab a bargain while visiting the Cote d'Azur as the boutiques try to get rid of their summer stock ahead of the new season.
