What's on in Paris in July?

See Le Connoisseur's picks for events in Paris this month.

___ Paris Jazz Festival 2019
Each Saturday and Sunday between now and the end of the month, enjoy some fantastic French jazz acts against the backdrop of the stunning Parc Floral in Vincennes. 

Tour de France Grande Finale

The Tour de France - the world's most renowned cycling race - has ended on the Champs Elysées since 1975. Find your ideal spot in the Jardin des Tuileries, and - unlike those spectators with wait for the tour to pass earlier along the route - you'll see the cyclists pass eight times before they make their grand finish!



Paris Plages

For a limited time in the summer, Parisians won't need to go on holiday to get perfect beach vibes! Granted, there are no waves gently lapping the shoreline, but there's sand, sun, deckchairs and drinks (and being half way to paradise is still pretty good).

Festival Paris l'Ete
Break away from your usual haunts with an arts festival that celebrates all of the different neighbourhoods of Paris. From the Louvre Pyramid to a Montmartre school hall, this series of events - music, dance, and theatre - will have you visiting curious venues all over the city.



La Nuit aux Invalides
Celebrating the 250th anniversary of the birth of Napoleon, this show explores 3000 years of history in Paris (formerly known as Lutèce). Afterwards, take a walk in the Church of the Dome lit by 1000 candles, and admire the tombs of the military leaders under Napoleon. 

Bastille Day

France's national holiday, culminating in a dazzling fireworks display from the Eiffel Tower, comprises 2 days of celebrations and entertainment throughout the city. With traditions including a military parade down the Champs-Elysées, and public dances at local fire stations, there are more than enough entertainment options to keep you well occupied today!
