Here is an overview of this festivial’s origins. Since a team of eleven Tropézians spawned the association CAP (Circle for the Future of the Presqu’île) of Saint-Tropez, its members have been working hard to “create events and bring our village to life.” Relying on strong networks, their success is growing. These two festive evenings, will take place at the Place du 15ème Corps in the heart of the city.

It is in an exceptional landscape, overlooking the most legendary village of the Côte d’Azur, that the Citadel of Saint-Tropez invites you!

We can’t talk about night-time festivities in the gulf of Saint Tropez without recalling the legendary “Grimaldines” event. As its name indicates, it takes place in Grimaud, both in its lakeside town and in its famous medieval village, which open their doors to the world for the occasion. So head over there for festivities and great parties…
