Description

The Foire du Trône is without doubt the oldest traditional funfair in France. It dates back to Lothaire, in 957, but it was not until 1805 that a small funfair appeared in the suburb of Saint Antoine.

Over the years, the fair grew in size and importance and took over the Pelouse de Reuilly towards the Barriere du Trône, then spread to the surrounding streets and boulevards. In 1957, the fair celebrated its thousandth anniversary. In 1964, it moved to the edge of the Bois de Vincennes.

Since then, children and adults have come to enjoy all the fun of the fair in springtime, including its 350 or so attractions spread over 10 hectares, on the Pelouse de Reuilly.

And for a sweet treat, there are food stalls selling candyfloss, toffee apples, crêpes, churros ...
Don't miss out on the traditional fireworks display that lights up the sky over the funfair on Labour Day on 1 May.
