Month after month of carnivals in Paris

Paris may not yet be Rio, but we've still got a lot to be proud of, with carnivals that strive to be more beautiful and more festive every year. Usually linked to the Christian festival of Mardi Gras, carnivals often refer to a type of celebration that is relatively widespread in Europe and America.

Carnivals are often an opportunity to celebrate, with song and music, but also, and above all, the ideal time to dress up, throw confetti and get together for a parade! That said, carnivals in Paris run from February to July: from Carnaval de Paris to Carnaval Tropical... There's plenty of time for parading, dressing up and celebrating several times a year.

Festive parades

In addition to carnivals, Paris also vibrates to the rhythm of wild parades, during which Parisians and tourists in the mood to party can sway to their hearts' content as they criss-cross the streets of the capital, following floats with specific themes. As the parades wind their way along the streets, you'll discover different atmospheres as the high-spirited participants put on their show.

The leading pair of these festive events is undoubtedly the Techno Parade and the Marche des Fiertés. The latter, formerly known as Gay Pride, is an opportunity to celebrate love in all its forms, while showing support for the LGBTQIA+ community.

Multi-cultural parades

It's also impossible to overlook the fact that Paris is a cosmopolitan capital where cultures from all over the world come together. From the Ganesh Festival to Chinese New Year parades and St. Patrick's Day, you can travel to the four corners of the globe without leaving the City of Light, discovering these colorful events and immersing yourself in traditions from other parts of the world.

It's a chance to learn about the history, beliefs and legends that give these festivities their meaning. Who knows, it might even inspire you on your future travels?
