ANZAC Day Antibes is not only a commemoration of the past but a celebration of our future.

We actively encourage the participation of children, young adults or whole families from the local expatriate community.

The ANZAC ANTIBES Association organises the only official ANZAC Day ceremony in the South of France.


We actively encourage young people to get involved by making a short speech in either English or French or both. Often we will have siblings giving a speech together, one in English and the other doing the French translation. In the past there have been poetry recitals in Maori.


Often families who live overseas feel a strong need to connect with their country of origin and ANZAC Day provides the perfect opportunity. If you would like your child to get involved in future ceremonies please don't hesitate to contact us.

For ANZAC Day in Antibes 2023, Paige Elliott (10 years old) and Eve Butler (9 years old) from New Zealand made a short speech about how important it is to remember the sacrifices of service men and women who have fallen in the name of freedom. Paige and Eve's fathers are both active servicemen with the NZDF.
