April Events in Paris: Super Barquette, Le Fooding Priceless Souper, Gaultier & More

Super Barquette Frenchie to Go, Mickaël Bandassak

If a springtime weekend out of the city is in order, we suggest heading north to Seine-Saint-Denis for Banlieues Bleues. The festival features a slew of jazz concerts, and given that this is the event’s 32nd year, they certainly know how to put together a fabulous lineup. Get your tickets soon, as the festival wraps on April 17.

Bloom: Local and ‘Fait Maison’ Cuisine in Paris’ 11ème

Bloom Cantine: Local and Home Made Cuisine at Paris Café in the 11th Arrondissement

On a quiet street in the 11ème, a few blocks away from the bustle of Bastille, sits a quaint canteen that opened this past spring and embodies the local, fait mason trend we’ve been seeing so much of in Paris recently. I cozied up at Bloom on a recent rainy Friday afternoon with a visiting American friend and enjoyed a lovely lunch.

The holiday season has begun in Paris and while the usual lineup of seasonal pop-up events – from ice skating at Hôtel de Ville to the Christmas markets scattered around the city – are back, this December brings a handful of other wonderful events as well.

The Centre Pompidou recently opened a retrospective of cult American artist Jeff Koons’s work. The exhibition is on view until April 27 and features some of the Koons’s most iconic pieces, from a Michael Jackson sculpture to the ever-recognizable oversized balloon animals.

It is officially la rentrée and Paris is abuzz. September brings Parisians back from their month-long holidays, revived and ready to welcome fall (at least for a few weeks). Here are some of our favorite events around the city this month.

This week kicked off the festival set with Jazz at la Villette (until September 14) and the Festival d’Automne (until December 30), and we continue with the Fête de l’Humanité next weekend (September 12 – 14). Each features concerts, various live performances, and with the weather recently turning to sunny and moderate, there’s really no better way to spend the upcoming week(s).
