En route to the Côte d’Azur? There are many summer events in St. Tropez to enjoy while you’re in town.

Top Festivals, parties and summer events in St. Tropez:
1. Saint Peter’s festival
29th—30th June 2019
This is a traditional fiesta in honour of Saint Peter – the patron saint of fishermen – and local modern-day fishermen. It is celebrated throughout the St. Tropez region, with street parties, parades and dances taking place in Cavalaire sur Mer, Le Lavandou, the town centre and in Plan-de-la-Tour.
2. Bastille day
14th July 2019
This is a national holiday in France, and traditional military parades are held across the country. As expected, it’s a key day for summer events in St. Tropez too.
The festivities begin the evening before with a firework display at 10:30 pm, and many clubs have special summer parties – such as the glitzy white party at Tiki Club. On Bastille day itself, there will be many outdoor dances and parades to look out for, with specific events to be announced closer to the time.
On the night of the 14th there is another firework display on Pampelonne beach, followed by a beach party that will run well into the early hours.
3. Classical nights at the Château de la Moutte
3rd—14th August 2019
Much of August is dedicated to classical music, dance and comedy in the moonlight at this beautiful Saint-Tropez castle. Now in its 44th year, 2019’s classical performances will include the sublime voice of Susan Manoff, the animated flamenco dances of Eduardo Guerrero, and the powerful improvisations of Thomas Enhco.
Organisers promise some great surprises to look out for…
4. Les Voiles de Saint Tropez
28th September—6th October 2019
Summer events in St. Tropez end as they begin: in classic French Riviera style. This regatta is comprised of a series of superb boat races every day around the Bay of St. Tropez, with a grand prize giving ceremony on Sunday 6th October.
Expect festivities onshore as well, with live music and crew parties on the beach and around the harbour.
