This week’s events in the Golfe of St Tropez (25/03/2019 – 31/03/2019)

Hello everybody.

So, many tourists know of the big events that happen throughout the year in and around St Tropez but how many of you know about allllllll the other exciting diverse events that happen every week?

Well I am going to be posting every week (I’ll try and do it on Sunday so you are up to speed for the upcoming week) about all the fun things to do. Sorry for being late this week.

You’ve all heard of the Voiles de St Tropez and the Giraglia Rolex Cup (our 2 biggest sailing races during the year, one in May and the other end of September – I will do a dedicated post for these events at some point). You all know about the famous yearly St Tropez Braderie, that enables us “normal” people to buy pretty and expensive bags, clothes… you name it!

Well you don’t know about all the other events that happen every week. A lot of events have already happened since the beginning of this year such as the Fête du Mimosa, burlesque shows, open-air ice-skating rinks, truffle weekends and much more…  But let’s not dwell on the past…

Here is a summary of this week’s upcoming events so you don’t miss out on any of the fun.

Sunday 31st :

Salsa, bachata, tango, rock n roll, twist or waltz? You no longer need to choose! Put on your dancing shoes for an afternoon filled with dancing and fun. 1500 at the Centre Maurin des Maures in Cogolin, 8€ admittance fee, tickets available at the pole animation of the Centre.
