From 8 to 12 February 2023

Mandelieu, Mimosa Capital

Richer, more festive than ever, but always joyful and popular, the Mimosa Festival will be coming to Town, overflowing with colourful flowery corsos (carnival parades).

Festival goers can head for the Place de France in the heart of Mandelieu – but don’t forget to visit the historical mimosa district: Capitou and La Napoule on the seafront.

The programme will include: Parades, light parades, flower corsos, a children’s carnival, entertainment, walks, exhibitions, entertainment areas, flower displays along the streets and in markets, as well as the unmissable crowning of Miss Mandelieu.

The five days of intense festivities will offer festival goers the chance to share, enjoy and celebrate the mimosa, the symbol of the winter sun on the French Riviera.
