What's on in Saint Tropez June 2019

As with most weekends in Saint-Tropez and along the Cote d'Azur, June begins with usual Provencal style markets, festivals and a good smattering of art.

Throw some vintage cars into the mix and the month of June has truly begun. Check out what to do in Saint-Tropez this month.

Vintage cars

June begins with some four-wheeled action. On Thursday, June 6th, the Rallye des Princesses arrives into the port of Saint Tropez on the last leg of this amazing ladies car rally. Travelling all the way from Paris to the Riviera in their vintage and collectors cars, the ladies and their chariots are a sight to behold.

Yet another vintage car rally rolls into town on Thursday, June 13th as the 2019 edition of the Megeve to St Tropez rally comes to a close. Combining the mythical passes of the Western Alps and the beautiful roads of Provence, the Alpilles, the Verdon and the Massif des Maures, this 900km rally culminates in the Place des Lices.

Markets

Saint-Tropez is certainly a place where you will find a market around every corner, normally with plenty of music, crafts and special Provencal culinary delights. Sundays, in particular, are popular days to enjoy that market vibe, and the Brocante du Jas des Roberts (Flea market) in Grimaud is a must-see.

Sailing

Things get a bit sporty in the middle of the month with one of the most renowned offshore sailing races in the Mediterranean, the Giraglia Rolex Cup. Celebrating its 67th edition in 2019, the fleet will gather in the chic harbour of Saint Tropez for three days of inshore competition before embarking on an offshore race to San Remo in Italy.

Traditional festivals

History parades through town on June 15th with the Bravade des Espagnols. This annual event commemorates Saint Tropez' victory against a fleet of 21 Spanish ships on June 15th 1637. Expect to see plenty of uniforms and muskets as the locals dress up in historical costumes to celebrate this day.

Live music

Next up is the ever popular Fete de la Musique, an event celebrated across France on June 21st. Launched in 1982 by the French Ministry for Culture, the Fete is different from a music festival in that all the concerts and performances are free to the public and none of the artists are paid. Authorities waive normal licensing laws, allowing the revelry to continue as long as there are people with the stamina to enjoy it. It is definitely one of the not-to-be-missed events of the summer social calendar.
