Take a break in Paris this summer and discover a capital rich in culture, art and the dolce vita!
Art in all its forms in Paris this summer
Until August 4th live shows invade the capital and turn up in the most unusual places! Dance, music, circus, theatre and other, more unclassifiable forms of art and performance take place in all corners of the city, in parks, schools, theatres and other venues. The Paris Summer Festival has been electrifying the capital for 28 years now and has lost none of its originality. Quite the contrary, in fact. This year, you’ll have the chance to discover the incredible circus show Capillotracted (Far-Fetched), amazing magic tricks from Yann Frisch, as well as dance performances courtesy of the choreographer extraordinaire, Olivier Dubois. Free your mind and be open to all artistic experience at the Paris Summer Festival.
All the fun of the seaside with Paris Plages
Flip-flops, deckchairs and palm trees; what else could it be but Paris Plages, back for another glorious summer? This celebration of the joys of the seaside has become an excitedly anticipated annual event. Come along and enjoy it, relax and daydream, watch the Seine flow by, and soak up the sunshine. Everything has been anticipated for your pleasure and fun, including tango lessons, petanque tournaments and theme nights for adults, as well as comics workshops, sports classes and treasure hunts for children. The open-air public swimming area in the Canal de l’Ourcq is an open invitation to enjoy a refreshing dip. Celebrate summer in style this year with Paris Plages!
