Let the games begin!

Each year, Cannes and the Côte d'Azur welcomes 150,000 visitors, and more than 10,000 competitors from all over the world to this event. All kinds of games will be on the cards, with over a hundred tournaments take place as well as hundreds of games to play free of charge in this giant (40,000m²) space dedicated to the world of games and gaming. There will be no film stars here or red carpets: it's all about poker, scrabble, role play games, board games, card games, mathematical games and video games, crosswords, sudoku, and so on.

Whether you are a champion bridge player, a tiddlywink enthusiast or a curious bystander, the international Cannes games festival is a fascinating event at the Palais des Festivals.

Join the 150,000 people attending the festival this year and participate in a games adventure which will be shared and discovered by all.
