FÊtes de Vendanges

10 – 14 October

Even in the city, autumn is the time of harvest! The hills behind the church of Sacre-Coeur produce a small amount of wine each year and so the 18eme arrondissement celebrates with a harvest festival. You’ll get wine tastings, markets with local delicacies and much more. This year there’s also a free, four-night music festival called Décibel Vendanges to celebrate the occasion.
