Sports and cultural events

Listen, watch and be moved

Theatres, cinemas, performance halls…Nîmes and its surrounding areas are brimming with iconic cultural venues that bring life to the Metropolitan area.

Take, for example, the concert hall Paloma : this facility, built and managed by Nîmes Métropole, has gained a prominent place in the cultural scene of the nation in a only a few short years. Its leading festival, TINALS — This Is Not A Love Song — has been acclaimed by the specialised press as the most innovative festival of the last few years.

And the Nîmes Métropole Jazz Festival is gaining recognition every year as a major event, where rare, intimate encounters with world-class artists
take place.

In the Nîmes Metropolitan area, there’s also the bullfighting tradition , still very much alive, and the lineup of the Vendredis de l’Agglo (Fridays in the Metro area) : a free show every Friday night at 8.45 pm, from January to December, in a municipality of the Metropolitan area!

The Nîmes Metropolitan area is full of life all year long, invigorated by a rich and varied cultural agenda updated daily on this website!
Never miss a major event, like the Advent olive oil festival, the great Roman games, or the wine and gastronomy event, Les Vignes Toquées…
