From July 16th to August 4th, Paris is transformed into an open-air stage and you are invited to discover the cream of contemporary creation. For 28 years the Paris Summer Festival has delighted Parisians and visitors to the capital, lovers of the unusual, and connoisseurs of dance, theatre, music and the circus. This wide-ranging high-quality event offers the perfect excuse, if one were needed, to take a summer break in Paris and satisfy your appetite for culture.
Three weeks dedicated to art in all its many forms
The Paris Summer Festival brings together a wonderful array of renowned artists to amaze you with performances, concerts, shows and installations that are innovative, astonishing, hypnotic or simply strange. Whatever your reaction, they will certainly not leave you unmoved! Among the talents invited this year we would like to specifically mention the choreographer Olivier Dubois, the playwright and director Joël Pommerat, the visual artist Luke Jerran and the magician Yann Frisch.
Appointments in unusual places in Paris
The aim of the Paris Summer Festival is to renew the public's relationship with artistic pieces, and the creative talents behind them are thus encouraged to present their works in all manner of venues, from those you would expect to some you would certainly not. Come along to enjoy works in swimming pools, parks and schools, and see the most beautiful city in the world from a different perspective. For your Parisian getaway this summer, book your room at the Hotels du Pré, family-friendly and welcoming establishments near the Opéra Garnier. A modern and trendy district, the 9th arrondissement will satisfy your shopping desires with department stores, your appetite with fine restaurants, and your wish for romance with strolls along cobbled streets.
