2023 Côte d’Azur Garden Festival


The Festival

The 4th edition of the Festival des Jardins de la Côte D’Azur will be held from Saturday 25 March to Monday 1 May 2023, and this year’s theme will be: “SURPRISING PERSPECTIVES”.

Throughout the event, visitors will be confronted with surprising effects using shadow and light, some obvious or more discreet perspectives, unusual visitor trails, places to stop and relax, and landscaped scenes where the combination of plants is beautifully showcased.

On the programme:

  • an international competition featuring landscaped creations across 6 venues,
  • gardens in the non-competing category, created by the local council’s landscaping department and partner institutions,
  • plenty of entertainment for people of all ages.

There are 31 unique and ephemeral creations to admire in this year’s festival.


The competing gardens will be open to visitors in Antibes Juan-les-Pins, Cannes, Grasse, Menton, Nice and the Principality of Monaco. Find out more on the webpage for the competition


The 5 competing towns from the Department will be presenting ephemeral “non-competing” gardens, created by the gardeners from the town councils, in line with this year’s theme.

The Principality of Monaco will be presenting a garden in the non-competing category on the balconies of the Casino, overlooking the sea.

An experimental garden created by the Campus Vert d’Azur in Antibes, in partnership with the National Union for Landscaping Companies (UNEP) at the Pinède in Antibes-Juan-les-Pins.
