Weekend in Monaco

#hello_monaco weekend: what to do on October 13th and October 14th

This weekend in Monaco is rich in events. And to help you navigate through them we put together a few suggestions.

Monte-Carlo Polo Cup

One of the spotlight events this weekend is the 6th Monte-Carlo Polo Cup 2018, organised by the Monte-Carlo Polo Club on October 12-14th in various locations.

Since 2011, the Monte Carlo Polo Cup has been one the most glittering occasions in Monaco’s celebrated festive calendar, attracting an illustrious gathering of royalty, aristocracy, business people and international media opinion.


One more event that goes though out the weekens is La Route du Goût (The Road to Taste). It will take place in Monaco for the 3rdconsecutive year, from 11 to 14 October, on the Quai Antoine 1er.  This major annual event is organised by the Bio Chef Global Spirit Association and presided over by Michelin-starred organic chef Paolo Sari from the Monte-Carlo Beach, with the aim of introducing the public to local, seasonal organic gastronomy.

For four days, chefs, producers, those involved in the organic movement, and the Principality’s major institutions will offer fun, flavourful activities.

Gaspard Proust

Musical Stand-Up: Je N’aime Pas Le Classique, Mais avec Gaspard Proust J’aime Bien is a good idea for the evening of October 13th at 8.00pm – Salle des Princes.

It’s been almost ten years since the concept “I don’t like classic, but this isn’t bad” became the most popular and unifying project of the classical music market. Adapting this success to the stage was thus an evolution that was both logical and bold. Logical, because it’s a safe bet that popular music on a record will also be popular on a stage. Bold, because it involved transforming a purely musical and graphical object into a real show. Thus, we discover Gaspard Proust, music lover. He became fully engaged in the project, designing himself a music selection ranging from Bach to the twentieth century, from Four Seasons to the Nutcracker, giving us a taste of the finest works of the repertory through the prism of his unique and irresistible humor. For the occasion, Gaspard Proust will be surrounded by a group of renowned classical musicians (piano, violins, cello, viola, flute and clarinet). Once again, the audience will attend a magnificent concert and, what’s more, a meeting of stand-up and classical music. Tickets are between €21 and €49.
