The gala takes place on a yearly basis at the beginning of August in the Salle des Etoiles of the Monte-Carlo Sporting Club. The first edition of the now world-renowned event took place in 1948.

Zizi Jeanmaire, Ella Fitzgerald, Charles Trenet, Sacha Distel, Charles Aznavour, Franck Sinatra, Elton John, and Stevie Wonder have all attended the gala in the past.

The glamorous atmosphere and the prestigious prizes of the gala’s charity auction contribute to making this ball one of the most coveted in the world.
