Cannes film festival - whcih May/June dates to avoid it?

My husband and I are planning a trip to the Riviera late May or early-mid June this year. May 26 is a holiday in the US so a good time to get away.

If we do May 23 - June 1, and do Nice, Menton and/or Antibes first, and then Cannes at the end -- 5/29 for 3 nights, do we get to avoid what I assume will be crowds and overbooked restaurants etc?

Will Nice, Menton and Antibes be relatively unaffected May 23-29?

We can also do June 6-15 or June 13--22.

Thank you

1. Re: Cannes film festival - whcih May/June dates to avoid it?

The Cannes film festival is over by 25th May 2014

There is also the Monaco Grand Prix weekend 24th and 25th May which has a knock on effect on Nice and probably Menton.

Antibes is likely not be affected too much by either event.

May 29th is a French public holiday and it is likely that the weekend after that will be busy.

There is a big conference in Cannes from 15 to 22nd June

6-15 June would be event free .

Hope this helps
