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 (2017)
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 (2017)
