This popular festival celebrating the mimosa, emblem of Mandelieu-la-Napoule, draws visitors every year from across the world.
This plant of Australian origin has adapted to the Mediterranean climate and has today invaded the hills of Tanneron.
Founded in 1931, Mandelieu-la-Napoule’s Mimosa Festival never fails to arouse the curiosity of visitors to the Côte d’Azur in its originality.
You too should come celebrate the flowering of the mimosa: winter sun of the Côte d’Azur!
Every year nearly 12 tonnes of mimosa are used to decorate the floats which make up the parades.
On the programme, floral parades, illuminated parades, street events, shows, carnival marches… created to a new theme every year.
Mandelieu-la-Napoule and mimosa: a long love story!
