On Saturday November 26, it will be a “Sea Market” which will welcome visitors at the Monte-Carlo Market from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

In addition to the merchants usually present, a sale of seafood products and tastings of grilled oysters and cuttlefish will be offered.

Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival 2022: Magma and the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra

There are other interesting events in Monaco. To begin the Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival 2022 continues with Magma and the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra concert on Sunday 27 November 2022, at 6 pm, in the Opéra de Monte-Carlo – Salle Garnier.

"Sustainable Textile Day"

On the occasion of the European Week for Waste Reduction (SERD) which will take place from November 19 to 27, 2022 on the theme “Sustainable Textile”, the Town Hall of Monaco will join this new edition through various actions. Among the highlights, the Municipal Institution, under the leadership of Marjorie Crovetto, Deputy Mayor, in charge of the Living Environment, Environment and Sustainable Development, is offering a “Sustainable Textile Day” on Saturday November 26 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. which will take place at A Casa d’i Soci (the House of Associations).

The textile industry, which is particularly polluting, has a significant impact on the environment (greenhouse gas emissions, water pollution, etc.). The Town Hall therefore wanted to organize a textile sale and offer Monegasques and residents the possibility to sell the clothes they no longer use and which are piling up in the cupboards! This sale of second-hand textile products allows everyone to participate in the action of recycling in favor of sustainable development.

At the same time, various workshops and awareness stands will be available to visitors.
