What's on in Paris in May & June?

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

___ La Nuit des Musées
On 18 May, Paris' museums (indeed, museums throughout Europe) remain open throughout the night. For one special night, you can enjoy not only the fascinating art collections of the city's museums, but also guided tours, shows, and concerts. 

Les Fêtes Galantes

Experience a truly unforgettable evening at a costumed ball in Versailles' own Hall of Mirrors. You can learn how to dance the minuet, play billiards, or explore the private apartments with your fellow elegant guests. Tickets are available from €135!

The Grand Siècle Day at Vaux-le-Vicomte

A slightly more relaxed costumed event, on 2 June you are invited to don your best hoop skirt and parasol for a period-themed party at the lovely Vaux-le-Vicomte. With musketeer shows, horse-drawn carriages, dancing, and a lot of lace, this is a particularly picturesque way to experience this elegant chateau! 

Taste of Paris

From 9 to 12 May, Paris' best chefs and food companies will gather at the Grand Palais for fabulous tastings and demonstrations.





Festival Jazz à Saint-Germain-des-Prés
The famous centre of Jazz in Paris, the Saint Germain des Prés district, will be home to the annual Saint Germain des Prés Jazz Festival from Thursday 16 May to Monday 27 May. With wonderful venues such as the Saint-Germain-des-Prés Church, Maison des Océans, and Odéon Théâtre de l’Europe, this promises to be a wonderful series of events for Jazz lovers!
