The Foire du Trône was to be back on April 2, 2021 on the Reuilly Pitch in Paris, but given the health situation, it cannot reopen. Delayed or cancelled, nothing has been announced so far. Last year, the 1,062nd edition could unfortunately not take place because of the coronavirus outbreak spreading in the world and the carnies cancelled the edition.
Because of the health crisis, the Foire du Trône could not reopen on April 2, 2021. As to know whether the new edition is cancelled or postponed, nothing has been announced yet on that matter. Anyway, organizing fairs remains banned so far. "From an administrative point of view, fairs are subject to the same rules" Louis Joubert - President of an association advocating for the fair world - says. "By mutual agreement with them, we are working on a likely reopening in June and for one month, if the health situation allows it", Anne Hidalgo's deputy mayor entrusted with commerce Olivia Polski explains.
It seems April 2 is an awaited date! Disneyland Paris, Parc Astérix, Futuroscope, theme parks all bet on this date for their grand reopening.
