#hello_monaco weekend: what to do on March 30th and March 31st

We are one foot into the Easter weekend, holiday for both kids and adults. And we are ready to recommend you a few events.

Like every year for the Easter holidays, the Town Hall offers different activities for children.

Plant Hunting in the Botanical Center

Like last year, the Botanical Center is organizing a major “plant hunt” on Saturday March 30, 2024 between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., for children aged 3 to 12 attending school or living in Monaco. The game (approximately 45 minutes) will take place in the heart of the greenhouses of the Botanical Center.

Princess Antoinette Park

On Sunday March 31, 2024 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., children will be able to come to Princess Antoinette Park to pat farmyard animals who have come especially for the occasion!

Makeup workshops, cookie decorating, mascots and distribution of chocolates… everything will come together to delight little darlings!

Please note: an Easter bunny will distribute chocolate eggs at the Condamine Market on Sunday March 31 from 9:30 a.m.!

Le Printemps des Arts continue its program with a concert “Carte Blanche for the Conservatories”, with the participation of the Académie Rainier III, the École municipale de musique de Beausoleil, the Conservatoire municipal de musique de Vence, the Conservatoire de musique à Rayonnement Communal de Grasse, and the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Nice organized on Saturday 30 March 2024, at 4 pm, in Auditorium Rainier III.

And on Sunday there is a “Danse Renaissance”, an interactive workshop with the Unisoni ensemble organized on Saunday 31 March 2024 at 11 am, in Atelier des Ballets de Monte-Carlo.

With the Unisoni ensemble, this workshop led by dancer and choreographer Anouk Mialaret invites you to step back in time and learn how people danced at balls in the 16th century, based on essays written during the Renaissance period. By the end of this fun event, you’ll be an expert at dancing the pavane, the galliard, the allemande, the farandole, and the rondo!

“The Amazing Keystone Big Band” concert continues the program of the festival on Sunday 31 March 2024, at 3 pm in Auditorium Rainier III.

The inventive jazzmen of The Amazing Keystone Big Band reinterpret The Carnival of the Animals and transform Camille Saint-Saëns’ masterpiece into a great celebration of jazz, taking us from Harlem to Brazil, and from ragtime to bebop, without losing any of the original work’s animal nature.

For their second concert at the Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo this year, The Amazing Keystone Big Band will take one of Count Basie’s most iconic albums – The Atomic Mr Basie – and add a few more of his famous tunes to create the ultimate tribute to the great jazz musician.

Exhibition: “A Prince, a Museum”

Among many interesting exhibitions that are held in Monaco these days you can take a look at The Monaco Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology that celebrates the vision of the current museum’s founder, Prince Rainier III with the exhibition: “A Prince, a Museum” held from Friday 15 December 2023 to Friday 5 April 2024, from 9 am to 6 pm.

Step into the history of the creation of the second Museum – a site museum! – in the heart of the Exotic Garden, just a few yards from the Observatory Cave. Learn about the numerous archaeological digs carried out during the Prince’s reign, and the unprecedented donations made by the Prince and Princess Grace Kelly. Explore different spaces on a variety of themes, from promotion of the Monegasque language to the holiday camps planned by the Museum’s then Director, Louis Barral.

Of course there are other interesting events taking place in Monaco. If you want to learn more about them visit our Calendar.

So have fun and enjoy your weekend!
