Find all the answers to all the questions you can ask about Lou Queernaval!
In 2015 and 2016, Lou Queernaval was completely free. Why is not this the case in 2019?
Following the attack of July 14, 2016, the security requirements are more important. The organizing committee is in contact with the Prefecture of Alpes-Maritimes, the municipal police of the City of Nice and with security agents. We want to do everything possible to ensure your safety. These requirements of course have a cost.
Because Lou Queernaval wants to be a family event and inclusive open to all, we decided to set up free for children under twelve years and for people with a disability card and accompanying them. For the others, we propose you to participate in the expenses up to 5 €.
The Lou Queernaval Organizing Committee is a 100% volunteer team that deploys a crazy and enthusiastic energy to offer you this popular and popular event. The modest contribution to the fees that we offer helps us to ensure therefore the costs inherent in the security system, to cover the travel expenses of the artists present, all volunteers, and thus ensure a quality evening, also accessible as possible.
