How is the health crisis likely to evolve over the coming months? Will it be possible to enjoy cultural and festive outings in Paris this summer? So far, the question remains without an answer, but the City of Paris is already thinking about the 2021 summer season and likely festive and cultural open-air events.
“It is worth considering that over the 2021 summer season, the Covid-19-related health situation allows – under some conditions – the organization of open-air events. With this in mind, the City of Paris and its partners are drawing up a list of outdoor places likely to host festive and cultural events starting this spring” the city hall website reads.
Réunion cet après-midi de préparation d’un été festif en plein air à #Paris :— Frédéric Hocquard (@Fredhoc) February 11, 2021
Plus de 100 acteurs de la #nuit parisienne, gestionnaires d’espaces sont réunis pour réfléchir, inventer, proposer de très beaux événements festifs dès cet l’été 🕺🏽🌞🎊 pic.twitter.com/R7KQLml8Oy
Tweet reads: “Afternoon meeting to prepare a festive and open-air summer in Paris: over 100 Parisian night players, space managers are gathered to think, invent, offer very beautiful festive events this summer”.
The Paris authorities even released a map as well as a list of outdoor places available for possible festive events; from sport gyms to railway stations including hippodromes, uncultivated areas, rooftops, event centers, and even green spaces… About fifty places have been listed so far. Goal? Supporting night professionals highly impacted since the Covid-19 crisis broke out, and enabling them to host open-air events this summer.
Please note the list is being drawn up and therefore is not exhaustive.
We hope this new summer season will enable night players to reborn open-air style. Remember, last year, clubs were closed, but open-air parties took place in compliance with health recommendations, such as Border City at Docks de Paris.
