Welcome to the June 2018 issue of “What’s up in Paris”.
This monthly magazine is dedicated to everything you need to experience, see, listen to and do in Paris!
So, stay with us and discover the “What’s up in Paris” selection of the events you shouldn’t miss in June 2018!

Experience:
Nothing like starting off June with THE Paris event of the summer! On 3 June, the “Dîner en Blanc” (Dinner in White) will be celebrating its 30th birthday. Midway between “select formal” and “country style”, the event attracts thousands of people, all dressed in white, for a giant picnic. It also has a second original feature: the guests, who are carefully selected and co-opted, don’t know where the event is to take place until just a few hours beforehand. After the Pompidou Centre, Concorde and the Hôtel de Ville, what will be the outstanding venue for the 2018 Dinner in White?

Everyone’s welcome at the Salon de la Pâtisserie, which will be at the Porte de Versailles from 15 to 17 June 2018. For its first year, the event is divided into 5 sections, with 200 exhibitors, 50 baking lessons and 10 Master Classes, and will be attended by France’s leading pastry chefs. And to put the icing on the cake, Pierre Hermé, nicknamed the “Picasso of Pastry” by Vogue USA, will be presiding over a weekend that has been eagerly awaited by food-lovers.
Practical information: www.lesalondelapatisserie.fr
Something for the children: the 9th “Festival du Film Merveilleux et Imaginaire 2018” will be taking place at the Théâtre Douze from 28 to 30 June. Magic, wonder, poetry, myths and legends will take participants on a journey of imagination and impossible feats. The event is organised with the support of the French Commission for UNESCO.

See: Ever dreamed of reliving Louis XIV’s royal festivities? On Saturday 23 June, the Great Masked Ball will be returning to the Château de Versailles Orangery. After nightfall and the “Grandes Eaux Nocturnes” (water and light show), you can stay and dance ‘til dawn to modern music but wearing period costume and mask. The ball will be in a new setting and will include dancers, performers and artistes. If you can’t wait that long, Château Vaux-le-Vicomte will be organising its “Journée Grand Siècle” (17th Century Day) on 3 June, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the estate’s opening to the public. The programme includes a 17th Century costume day, with baroque dance, musketeers and rides in a horse-drawn carriage. A unique experience of the French art of living.

On 23 and 24 June, the Musée du Quai Branly will be offering a “diabolical weekend” as part of the “Enfers et Fantômes d’Asie” (Asian Underworlds and Ghosts) exhibition. Readings, evening opening, a ghost hunt and other performances will help visitors learn all there is to know about the world of hungry spirits, hopping vampires and “yokaï”, through the popular cultures of Thailand, China and Japan.

Listen:
On 21 June, the 2018 “Fête de la Musique” (Music Festival) takes to the streets of Paris and to the museums and other public buildings in the capital. You’ll have a huge choice of musicians and singers to discover, from every facet of the music scene. Here are just a few events to remember: the Institut du Monde Arabe will be celebrating Oriental music on its forecourt with its “cultural dialogue” concept, Boogie Balagan, a group that combines languages (French, English, Arabic, Hebrew, Turkish and Spanish) and styles (blues, boogie, Seventies rock), will be playing at the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire du Judaïsme, and the Institut Culturel Italien will be offering a concert from the Accademia Teatro alla Scala.
On 3 June, the Icelandic singer Björk will be back in Paris to present her new album “Utopia” at this year’s edition of the We Love Green festival. Orelsan, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lomepal will also be there!
Bookings on www.welovegreen.fr

Do:
Need to relax? International Yoga Day returns to the Parc de la Villette for the third consecutive year on 16 June 2018. International Yoga Day is open to everyone, from yoga fans to beginners, from 9am to 11am!
Information: journeeinternationaleduyoga.com
If you’re feeling full of energy and need to run it off, the 8th Paris 10km race will be taking place on Sunday 10 June 2018. The last race in the “Paris trilogy”, the Paris 10km race rounds off the capital’s “Running” offer, following on from the Paris Half-Marathon and Marathon.
Looking at more unusual sports, Paris’s first pushchair race is beating all records. Launched by the “magicmaman-famili” team three years ago, this family race in aid of the “Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque” (a Heart Surgery charity) will be taking place on Sunday 24 June 2018 in the Bois de Vincennes.
Bookings: www.lepotcommun.fr

Finally, if you’re not too fleet of foot but you do have green fingers, go to the Grand Marché Stalingrad on 10 June 2018 and take part in the Garden Club. The programme includes workshops on how to “green up” the city, an introduction to gardening and a tour of an urban kitchen garden, set up for the occasion on the roof of La Rotonde. A chance for a breath of country air!

Thanks for joining us – we’ll be back next month!
