Les Étoiles de Mougins Festival goes global :

Les Étoiles de Mougins Festival, thanks to its renown acquired over the years, goes abroad to organize similar events beyond French borders: New-York in 2007, Brussells in 2008, Saint-Tropez in 2009 and 2010, Los Angeles in 2010, Casablanca and Lerici in 2011, and Funchal on the Island of Madeira in 2012, sought Les Étoiles’s know-how to create their own events, inspired by the Festival of Gastronomy. These provide new opportunities for Mougins to promote the destination abroad and associate its image with other famous places.
