Events for the Monegasque National Festival
Sunday 18 November and Monday 19 November, Principality of Monaco
"Sovereign's Day" is traditionally held on the day of the day of the reigning Prince's patron saint. Rainier III departed from this custom by choosing the day of his enthronement, 19 November, which also happens to be the celebration of Rainier d'Arezzo. In memory of his father, Prince Albert II kept the same date, thus fixing the date of Monaco’s National Festival on 19 November..
