Weekend in Monaco

#hello_monaco weekend: what to do on October 28th and October 29th

Are you ready for your weekend? If not, let’s get ready for it together. Here are a few things you can do alone or with a company.


The traditional funfair is back in Port Hercule, so if you have free time take a walk there. Here is all about the new attractions and practical information about it.

Like every year, the essentials are there: Space Combat, Jumping Frog and, for thrill-seekers, Extazy or Mega Dancer. But eyes will undoubtedly be glued to the new attractions installed on the Quai Albert-I, notably the King Tower. “A shoot at 130km/h, rotating around an axis, allowing you to rise 45 meters above the ground,” says the Monaco town hall, organizer of the event.

This edition marks the big return of Play Ball, the basketball-shaped ride. Obviously, a fair would clearly lack flavor without its delicacy stands. Families will be able to enjoy a waffle, a Hungarian brioche, pancakes but also savory delicacies (socca, hot dog, etc.). The event also hosts numerous game stands to satisfy all ages and desires.


This year’s Grimaldi Trophy takes place on October 27 and 29. The Yacht Clubs of Monaco and Sanremo jointly organize this two-day regatta, which brings the summer season to a close.

An Exciting New Yacht for 2022: the Greener Malizia

One more sailing event this weekend is the Departure of Transat Jacques Vabre is scheduled this year on Sunday, 29th October 2023. Let’s wish Monaco Team Malizia good luck!

Since 1993, the biannual Transat Jacques Vabre has managed to establish itself as the toughest and longest-running two-handed transat. The race is equally revered by the sailors and an enthralled public, reaffirming its relevance and the investment of its partners with each edition. The original concept is simple: the source of this great race is a historical route: the coffee route. It is an event with an expert mix of tastes, vintages, aromas and characters.

After the “The Prince at home” a new temporary exhibition “Pablo Picasso and Antiquity” started at the Palais Princier de Monaco.

Organized in the Palais Princier de Monaco, alongside the recently restored 16th-century frescoes, the exhibition focuses on a selection from the collection of the Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso (FABA), as well as a painting from the Nahmad Collection. “Pablo Picasso et l’Antiquité” provides a stage for Picasso’s thoughts on the survival, legibility and malleability of ancient artifacts, beyond the jolts of history and the degradation of objects.

The exhibition explores themes of ruin and decline as well as of endurance and renewal in relation to Picasso’s distinctive takes on Classicism in a variety of mediums from the post-WWI period to the 1950s. In so doing, it illuminates the radical ways in which the artist reimagined the heritage of the Greco-Roman world through subjects, style, and materials as he contradicted the dogmatism and idealism of the academic tradition.

The exhibition is part of the international collaboration Picasso Celebration 1973-2023 on occasion of the 50th anniversary of Pablo Picasso’s death.

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