Paris and its surroundings offer numerous events and recreational activities, designed with children in mind.

In Paris, many places specialize in activities for children. Puppet shows, circuses, magicians, storytellers, and singers … So many quality performances for great family outings! Once again this year, there is a huge choice for little ones.

And cultural surprises are in store for kids too with big exhibitions, as well as trade shows. Like the famous and much-loved ‘Pestacles’ children’s festival at the Parc Floral, the majority of shows outdoors (Paris Plages, Festival Paris Quartier d’Eté, etc.) are open to children and are the opportunity to get together for a family picnic.

Finally, the Art workshops at some museums such as the Louvre, Orsay, the Musée en Herbe, the Palais de Tokyo and the Centre Pompidou, may make your kids into famous artists.Paris has so much choice to keep children occupied, familiarize them with art, and offer them many wonderful surprises!

Throughout the year 2020, you’ll find a selection of top events for all the family.
