Babylangues tells you what to do in Paris in February, to make the most of your free time in the city!
Carnaval de Paris
On 7th February, come and make the most of Paris’ carnival, this year themed around the enchanted wonders of the sea. Starting at 1pm at place Gambetta and passing through Ménilmontant and Belleville, the parade will conclude at place de la République, where the party will continue until 8pm. Groups from all over the world will join this extravagant spectacle.
Festival Ciné Junior
From 3rd to 16th February, the Public Cinema association is organising, for its twenty-sixth year, the CINÉ JUNIOR festival in twenty cinemas and seven multimedia libraries across the Val-de-Marne region. The aim of the project is to promote high-quality French and foreign language cinema, hoping to incite artistic flair and enthusiasm in younger audiences. The festival arranges discussions and seminars with the directors following certain screenings to encourage questions and reflections on the world of cinema.
‘Taste of Paris’
From 11th to 14th February, the Grand Palais will be transformed into a temple of fine cuisine to celebrate the second edition of the ‘Taste of Paris’ festival. The programme includes tastings of signature dishes from some of the capital’s finest restaurants, the chance to discover the latest trends of the city’s gastronomy, demonstrations led by some of Paris’ greatest chefs and the possibility to get your hands on high-quality produce from the best artisans and local producers in France.
Paris Face Cachée
Paris Face Cachée is the event that allows you to discover the Paris region in the most unconventional of ways. Over three days, explore places usually closed to the public or where one-off interactive installations are organised. All imaginable domains are incorporated into the event, from art to sport, from culture to medicine! By night or by day, these tours will offer an unusual perspective on the capital and its surrounding suburbs, featuring, for the first time, Seine-et-Marne to celebrate the festival’s fifth anniversary. A celebration like no other and certainly not to be missed!
