Carnivals of the World: Nice Carnival

Roi du Carnaval de Nice (King of Carnival in Nice)

Nice Carnival hadn't come up on my radar until I began this series on the Carnivals of the World - the theme chosen for Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival in 2021 - but it's the largest carnival in France, held annually in Nice on the French Riviera. The first records for it appear in 1294, which, they claim, may make it the original carnival celebration.


Organised by the municipality since 1873, each year Nice Carnival draws over a million visitors, but was interrupted by the first and second world wars, as well as the Gulf War in 1991. The planned dates for Nice Carnival in 2021 are from 13th to 27th February.
