Do your little ones like to dance as well?! La Fête de la Musique is a lively street music festival held every June 21st in Paris, and is one of the year’s most popular events in the city of light. Hundreds of musicians gather in the streets, bars, and cafes of Paris, giving free performances of everything from jazz and rock to hip-hop and electronic music.
It begins in the afternoon with organized groups of children singing in the parks. By evening, the music pours from every possible venue; the street corners of the Champs Elysee, the parks, the churches, the Louvre, the plazas and the courtyards and from almost every single bar and café. Its a great opportunity to get to know the city’s neighbourhoods like a local. And if your kids enjoy the music… They are very welcome to show off their dance moves!
