Bercy Village lights up for the festive season, from November 16, 2023 to January 8, 2024! Discover Christmas treats above your head, in this alley transformed into a magical place. On the program: a gourmet stroll, an XXL selfie spot, Christmas tales, and of course, Santa Claus himself!

Christmas is slowly taking hold in Paris, and the joy of the festive season is taking hold of the capital's inhabitants. In this festive season, the City of Light has never lived up to its name. As shop windows come alive, the streets are lit up one by one, revealing fabulous decorations to discover as you stroll along. And Bercy Village is planning to take part in the festivities, with its famous open-air alley decked out with Christmas treats for the occasion!

From November 16, 2023 to January 8, 2024, this shopping center like no other will be unveiling its magnificent illuminations. Gone are the pretty hanging umbrellas, and now the magic of the festive season has arrived, with Christmas decorations hanging overhead for an enchanted stroll through a"delicious Christmas", amid mouth-watering candy can es and glittering trees as night falls!

The scenography is by Blachere Illuminations, also responsible for the illumination of the Champs-Elysées. We're also promised an XXL selfie spot in the shape of a candy cane for immortalizing your shopping session on social networks! A fairytale atmosphere for the whole family, accompanied during December weekends by a wonderful Christmas tale : The Nutcracker! Between December 3 and 17, three musical parades based around the ballet will fill you with wonder.

And let's not forget Santa Claus himself and his faithful elf, who will leave Lapland for a few days on Saturdays, December 2, 9 and 16, to share special moments with children and listen to their long lists of presents!

Show schedule

  • December 3: Four Giant Toys, toy soldiers that stand 3.5 m tall and create awe at every turn.
  • December 2, 9 and 16: Santa Claus and his elf
  • December 10: The Nutcracker Parade with five costumed musicians
  • December 17: The ballet of classical dancers, twirling with grace and precision, reminding us why this time of year is so emotional.

And what about energy sobriety? Bercy Village points out that the avenue will once again be illuminated by energy-efficient LED lighting.
