One of the most important carnivals in France

The Nantes carnival has undergone many changes over the years. Indeed, it is a very old carnival that has known several forms such as masquerades or masked balls. All these carnivals have marked the history of Nantes.

A tour in the heart of the city centre

This year, the daytime parade will begin with the Cours Saint-André, then pass through Place Saint-Pierre, the cours des 50 otages, Place de Port Communeau and finally return to the Cours Saint-André. We recommend that you go to the 50 Otages Cours, which is only a 10-minute walk from the Graslin Hotel, to attend the daytime parade.

The night parade on Sunday, April 13th will follow the same itinerary.

The Children's Carnival

It will take place this year on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 from 2pm to 5pm on the Cours Saint-André. Many activities will be proposed: make-up, stories, inflatable structures... and a musical snack will be offered to the participating children.

A carnival that makes the Show

For this 72ᵉ edition, the theme will be "the Nantes Carnival does its show" it should move even more than the living room! On the program, about fifteen chariots, hundreds of musicians and dancers and a group of "big heads". You can also cheer the 3 queens of Nantes who will be part of the procession.

Find the open doors of the Nantes Carnival on February 23rd, 2019.
On this occasion you will be able to discover the chariots under construction and the riders who will march.
