Celebrations and festivals in Paris

Celebrations and festivals galore. The arts come together in some unexpected places in Paris

Throughout the year, there are numerous celebrations and festivals all over the city. In summer, the arts come together in some unexpected places: on the Seine riverbanks, in courtyards of mansion houses, on lawns, in woods, parks and gardens, and in museum galleries temporarily transformed for a concert or a performance ...

The Chinese New Year, the Carnaval de Paris and the Printemps du Cinéma at the beginning of the year, and the Fête de la Musique in June. The Festival de de l'Ourcq, the festivals Paris Quartier d'Eté and Paris Plages during the summer, the Journées du Patrimoine, the Techno parade and Nuit Blanche in autumn, and then at the end of the year a packed calendar of festive events for the Christmas season ...

Don’t forget to keep checking our calendar of celebrations and festivals in Paris to keep up to date with events that make the French capital a dynamic place buzzing with culture and energy in 2017!
