Cannes Yachting Festival

From 7 to 12 September, the Yachting Festival will take place in Cannes, an unmissable event in the nautical world.

After a year off due to the pandemic, the festival is back with 600 boats and 430 exhibitors. The gates will open from 10am to 7pm, with an evening experience on Friday until 10pm, and closing on Sunday at 6pm.


The entrance fee is 18 euros for one day. However, please note that no tickets will be sold on the spot in accordance with Covid-19 requirements. Reservations can only be made online. In addition, a health pass is required to enter the site and a mask must be worn in the festival area.

Two ports, two atmospheres

The Old Port of Cannes will host the motor area where 450 brand new boats will be on display. Just next door, in the Palais des Festivals, you will find the Luxury Gallery, a space dedicated to luxury, craftsmanship and the art of living.

On the opposite side of the Croisette, Port Pierre Canto will host the sailing area and the brokerage & toys area – an area dedicated to second-hand boats and nautical toys. Free shuttle buses will run between the two ports every 15 minutes.

If you are not tempted by the Cannes experience, the Monaco Yacht Show 2021 will take place from 22 to 25 September.
