Avoid Crowds in Cannes by keeping an eye on local events such as film festivals and trade fairs. Another good indicator for Cannes being busy is the French school calendar. Located in the south of the country, the sea side city attracts both tourists from France and beyond. Busiest months are July and August but local events can make it very crowded in May and June as well. Best time to travel is most likely just after the peak season in September.
