Published by Julie M. · Photos by Caroline J. · Published on 5 November 2020 at 10h01
While coronavirus is currently spreading in France, a health and safety measure forbids any gathering over 5000 people in a closed space. Consequently, many fairs in Paris must be cancelled or postponed to another date as an obligation or for a precautionary measure. Will it open, will it be cancelled? Sortiraparis tells you everything!

Coronavirus keeps on spreading a bit everywhere in the world and 5437 cases have been reported in France including 127 dead and 12 people cured the day we wrote this article on March 16, 2020. Consequently, the French government has asked as a health and safety measure to shut down restaurants, bars, non-essential stores and movie theaters. In the meantime, Île-de-France is getting ready for total confinement. Many fairs planned in Paris and Île de France will have to be cancelled or postponed. Including:
