This summer festival, always unsure whether it will be renewed for the following year (for some reason) is back nonetheless to add some quirky arts events to your Parisian summer, with some refreshingly different things on offer, staged in some surprising spaces.
Here’s what’s going down…
Paris Plage is a bit different this year (and don’t even get me started on the weather), with part of the traditional Seine site closed and being reworked for autumn, only two sites instead of three (the one in the 13th arrondissement has disappeared) and more and more sponsor logos.
Despite all that, there’s still a lot to merit a visit: a 4-day music festival, the Olympic Games live on a big screen, 800 metres of sandy beach, a temporary library, Tai Chi lessons, traditional pétanque for free, and even some new stuff!
Here’s all the info…
Fine sand, great music and perhaps even a mojito or two… The Glazart beach has a lot going for it for this summer in Paris!
Here’s all the info.
A traditional funfair right in the centre of the city. Here’s all the info.
In Paris, if you follow the Canal Saint Martin towards the Bassin de la Villette, it becomes the Canal de l’Ourcq, and if you follow the Canal de l’Ourcq through the Parc de La Villette and out into the suburbs, you’ll discover some amazing things this summer : concerts, traditional balls, arts, guided visits, canoes, beaches… Here’s all the details!
21st edition of this summer festival that explores cultures from around the world and venues all around Paris.
