Tuileries funfair 2017

From Saturday June 24 to Sunday August 27, 2017, the Tuileries funfair will be back. Do not miss this incredible human-size family funfair in full heart of Paris.

Children and adults are all expected in the Jardin des Tuileries for the yearly funfair held from Saturday June 24 to Sunday August 27, 2017. Created 20 years ago, the Tuileries funfair or Fête des Tuileries is the second largest Parisian funfairs after the Foire du Trône. Nonetheless, the Fête des Tuileries is more traditional and family-oriented.

We are here by the will of the people and we shall not leave our places save by the force of bayonets”. Marcel Campion could use these famous words by the Comte de Mirabeau said at a General Estates meeting. His fight to set up attractions in city centers despite the reluctance of the successive public authorities is nothing new. It has been going on for 30 years. Organizing a funfair is not a walk in the park even more for those who decided to set it up through thick and thin. See for yourself the covers of newspapers from the era which passed the carnies’ action. They squatted the Jardin des Tuileries with weighty allies: elephants from the Cirque Pinder came to their rescue… In 2011, the French government agreed on a ten-year convention renewable by carnies. Let the party begin in peace!

  • genuine merry-go-rounds from 1900 with wooden horses
  • the famous big wheel
  • bumper cars
  • ghost trains
  • the 6G, the funfair’s modern merry-go-round turning at 87 mph

The most gourmet visitors will watch attractions whilst enjoying the compulsory waffles, churros, cotton candies and toffee apples.

Concerts and jazz festival will surely be in and the program is to come soon.

To make the best of Jardin des Tuileries in peace, the funfair provides no sound system.

So, do not hesitate and go there with your kids to enjoy your holidays in Paris in the sun!
