If you enjoy dressing-up and parading in Paris streets, meet on Sunday March 3, 2019 for the 22nd edition of the world-famous Paris Carnival!
And no need to say that, this year again, Paris Carnival organizers decided to put on a great spread with a theme likely to trigger everyone’s imagination: "One for all and all for sport".
So, to experience this unique moment, the 22nd parade of Paris Carnival Promenade du Boeuf Gras will parade as usual the Sunday before Mardi Gras meaning on Sunday March 3, 2019.
Paris Carnival 2019, route:
Meet on Sunday March 2, 2019 at 1 p.m. at the Place Gambetta in Paris 20th arrondissement. Departure at 2 p.m. to walk the following route:
The parade could stay up to 8 p.m., except possible change. End of the party and break-up at 8 p.m.
For the record, this carnival is a festive event that is free, voluntary, free of charge, traditional, independent, self-managed, not-for-profit and non-subsidized. Everyone is welcome! You don't have to sign up to be part of it. You can decide at the last minute to take part in it or not, you can follow the parade on a portion of the route or not. You can choose whatever spot you want in both processions. It's the real carnival not a street show.
And don’t forget either that, on Sunday March 31, 2019, another traditional Paris Carnival parade: the procession of the Reines des Blanchisseuses at mid-Lent, the Carnaval des Femmes. Women are invited to dress up as queens and men in women, if they dare.
