We Love Green Festival

As in most places, summer is festival season (External link) in Paris – so consider timing your visit to coincide with one that celebrates what you’re into, whether that be music, theatre, cinema, dance or street arts.

Wednesdays are winners with the concerts at La Plage de Glazart (External link) and the family-friendly Les Pestacles (External link) in the Parc Floral, both running June to September. Also on our hotlist for 2017 are the environmentally-conscious We Love Green (External link) (10-11 June), the Paris Jazz Festival (External link) weekenders (17 June-30 July), Bercy Village’s Opéra Côté Cour (External link) for shortened operas and operettas (June to September), and the vast Cinéma en Plein Air (External link) at Parc de la Villette (12 July-20 August). The festival season will end on a high with Rock en Seine (External link) over the August bank holiday weekend.
