The firemen’s balls for Bastille Day
13th & 14th July 2018 in Paris

The official list of this year’s firmen’s balls in Paris has just been pblished, and there are few changes from the usual – especially for the 14th July where the numbe of balls on offer drops from six to one!

We have all the addresses, opening hours and a map to find all the balls, including the ones nearest our hotels!

Yep, after years of stability, there’s been a shakeup in the 2018 firemen’s balls in Paris.

Perhaps for security reasons, the number of balls on offer has been reduced, meaning that the 13th July is the main date, and there’s only one ball on 14th July (which will probably be very busy).

The good news is that there are still five balls on offer on the Left Bank on 13th July, including the incredible ball in the Arènes de Lutèce.

It’s not every day you get to party in a Gallo-Roman amphitheatre.

The big change is having just one ball in Paris on 14th July, and it’s not even in a fires station.

Our science museum, the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie is transforming its main hall into a huge dancefloor to welcome the event, and ther will even be a demonstration of gymnastics during the night!

You’ll find more info in French here.

You might also like to know that the next day, the 15th Jully, La Villette has a special firemen open day called Au feu les pompiers !, with ladder climbing, a presentation of the service’s divers, workshops, an assault course, gymnastics, music, information stands and even a kind of firemen’s fashion show!
