One of the best jazz festivals along the French Riviera takes place in Ramatuelle in August, the Ramatuelle Jazz Festival from the 16th until the 20th of the month. Focused on swing jazz, it features many American and French musicians oscillating between new discoveries and established artists. In addition to an exclusive program, Jazz à Ramatuelle tirelessly promotes local musicians and delights an audience of new music lovers with free concerts every night.

Commemoration of the Allied landing

Every August 15th, the Cote d'Azur commemorates the Allied landing with an impressive display of fireworks. Operation Dragoon took place in 1944, two months after the Normandy landings, and brought Allied soldiers to the beaches of Saint-Tropez, Sainte-Maxime, Cavalaire-sur-Mer, Frejus and Saint-Raphael. Fireworks will take place at 23:30 in Saint-Tropez on the night of August 14th, while the 15th will see celebrations honouring veterans as well as live music in the evening.
