Paris plays host to a plethora of festivals throughout the summer which are held in wonderful settings. The estate of Chamarande boats a backdrop of beautiful gardens and showcases the magnificent 17th century castle, with the gardens becoming an open-air stage for contemporary dance.

The Versailles Festival is a must with shows, concerts, exhibitions and events at the magnificent Palace of Versailles with a highlight being the famous Fountains Night Show where the gardens become ‘a land of astonishing sights and sounds’.

Jazz lovers must head for the Parc Floral to enjoy concerts at no charge! To enjoy music, theatre and the circus, head to the Luxembourg Gardens, Park de la Villette and Andre Citroen Park to celebrate the Paris Quartier d’Eté Festival. On a balmy night, visitors can enjoy outdoor cinema in different locations throughout the city.

September brings a fabulous firework display ‘The Great Firework Display of Saint-Cloud’ on the 13th September at the Saint-Cloud Park. If green is your thing then a visit to the ‘We Love Green Festival’ at Bagatelle Park is a must (until 24th September). The Autumn Festival is held at the Théatre du Châtelet with drama, ballet and the classics all the main themes.
