Feel like taking the kids out for a day of fun? Why not try one of the many festivals for children in the city that offers kids shows, music, dance, or even outdoor movies? Take a look through the possibilities with our guide.
- Children Festival
At the Parc Floral in Paris, this is one of summer’s main events for families, from June 7th to September 27th, 2017. Don’t be scared of the name of the festival since it comes from the wrong pronunciation of “spectacle” [show] by French children. Imagine concerts of all kinds, shows, dance, workshops and learning tours, all in an enjoyable and natural environment, in the beautiful Bois de Vincennes forest park.
- Music Festival at the Jardin d’Acclimatation To celebrate the sunny weather, the Jardin d’Acclimatation welcomes the “Un Printemps en Musique” event, which includes a series of concerts for families on Saturdays and Sundays from May 28th to October 15th, 2017.
- L'Eté des p'tits futés The 10th annual “l’Été des p’tits futés” festival awaits children all summer from July 10th to September 1st, 2017 at the Theater Darius Millhaud. Experience this clever festival that brings together culture and fun in the gardens at the Parc de la Villette and the Park Buttes Chaumont just 5 minutes away from the theater.
- Mini Rock en Seine, the Rock Festival for Kids

For three days, August 26th, 27th and 28th, 2016, kids ages 6-10 can enjoy a fun space with a specially created program that includes workshops, costumes, a playground, dances and concerts just for them.
