Summer Festivals in Paris | OneTravel

Planning on spending time in the City of Lights this July or August? In addition to Paris’ usual wonders, there are a variety of festivals to enthrall and entertain you during your stay. Are you a performance art lover? Check out the one of the international performers at the Quartier d’été arts festival. Love the Black Keys? They’ll be playing at Rock en Seine in August. Fancy a film outdoors? Park Villette is the place to be.

 

Quartier d’été

July 14th through August 11th

Looking for a unique Parisian experience this summer? Check out Quartier d’été. This city-wide summer arts festival kicks off on July 14th, which is also Bastille Day, France’s national holiday. Quartier d’été features a variety of film, dance, music, performance art, theater, and circus art performances by international artists, and most of them are free! For specific information on performers and schedules, see http://www.quartierdete.com/

 

Rock en Seine

August 24th through 26th

For three days at the end of August, the large grassy area of Domaine national de Saint-Cloud, located just outside Paris's city limits, will be full of music fans enjoying the 9th annual Rock en Seine music festival. Festival passes are available for one, two or all three days. If you’re planning on staying for more than one day, you can even camp nearby. This year’s Rock en Seine performers include The Black Keys, Placebo, Green Day, Agoria and SigurRos. For information on performances and tickets, see http://www.rockenseine.com/en/

 

Cinéma en plein air

July 25th through August 26th

There are few simple pleasures lovelier than packing up a baguette, cheese and a bottle of wine, grabbing a blanket and heading to Parc de la Villette for an evening of cinema. The annual Cinéma en plein air festival’s film screenings are top-quality and typically free. There is at least one screening per evening from July 25th through August 26th. Don’t speak French? No problem. Many of the films are international and quite a few are in English. For more information on screening schedules, see http://www.villette.com/fr/agenda/Cinema-en-plein-air-2012.htm
