Yay, it’s almost May! Not long before summer really takes off and there is always a lot happening this month. These are our upcoming events in May 2023 and some other important dates worth mentioning!
Upcoming events in May 2023 for meeting people on the French Riviera
Alrighty, let’s start with the events organised by us – definitely not as big as the other events in this article.
We have two meetup events coming up in May 2023. The meetups are relaxed evening get togethers that will allow you to make friends, have a chat and good fun.
First we will come to Le Bateleur in Nice on 12 May, followed by another meetup on 26 May at the brand new Allé Allé – located in the shopping mall CAP3000 in Saint-Laurent-du-Var.

Monaco Grand Prix
Monaco has the most famous- and by many described as the most technical circuit in the world. It’s actually on the streets of Monaco. The circuit is narrow, offers tons of action and this is simply something you don’t wan’t to miss!
Tickets are expensive and difficult to get your hands on. The good news however is that they not only host the Formula One Grand Prix from 25 to 28 May 2023. You can also enjoy the E-Prix on 6 May 2023!

Another exciting car event coming up this month. The Rallye Antibes Côte d’Azur with multiple challenging stages starting from 17 to 20 May 2023. We just love rally racing as this requires outstanding driving skills on the steep climbs, narrow streets and nerves of steel!
