This monthly magazine’s here to show you all the best things to see, hear, do and experience in Paris!
So stick with us and let “What’s Up In Paris” show you what not to miss this February 2019!
What to experience
Anyone with a passion for classic cars and history (and anyone else, for that matter) will want to head down to the Rétromobile trade show at the Porte de Versailles, where the 44th edition of the show will shine a spotlight on more than 600 classic collector’s automobiles. It is one of the biggest annual meets for companies selling spare parts and tools and car restoration experts, too. So come down to the 14th and see what the show has to offer: this year, they’re celebrating the 60th birthday of the legendary Mini Cooper and shining a spotlight on the iconic Bédélia!
For more information: www.retromobile.fr
If you’re around on the 10th of February, why not head over to the Espace Reuilly for the 6th edition of the Paris Loves Vinyl show? With 100,000 records, 60 exhibitors from across Europe and 8 DJ sets, it’s a must for anyone with a turntable! There’s a reason that collectors and music lovers flock to this event every year...

The traditional Chinese New Year parade is back, winding its way through the 13th arrondissement on the 17th of February. What better way to celebrate the arrival of the Year of the Pig than with a wealth of tradition and folklore, giving us all the chance to discover Chinese, Vietnamese, Cambodian and Tibetan cultures. A whole host of shows and events are planned for the week leading up to it too, such as the “Capture the soul” photo exhibition from Hei Ming and an evening of tales with the “Tet festival” event, celebrating the lunar new year - a traditional festival in Vietnam. You can find the full line-up at api-site.paris.fr
What to see:
From the 21st of February onwards, the Louvre Museum will open its doors for the “Engraving for the King” exhibition, showing a collection of Chalcographic works. You’ll be able to see a collection of “panels ordered by Colbert to illustrate the grandeur of Louis XIV’s reign”, in addition to those from the Menus-Plaisirs and the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture. This is a great opportunity for visitors to immerse themselves in 18th century engravings. In total, there will be a hundred or so works on display, with almost 70 engravings from these three historic collections. Official site: www.louvre.fr
What better way to discover this country than an exhibition called “La France 1926-1938”? On the 26th of February, the Fondation Cartier-Bresson will be showcasing a collection of work from the South African photographer Guy Tillim, in addition to a selection of images from Henri Cartier-Bresson. These photos capture the very first paid holidays, the arts in the capital and daily life in France in the 1930’s. A real step back in time! For more information and to book your tickets: www.henricartierbresson.org

After the success of Klimt, the Atelier des Lumières will soon be opening up the world of Van Gogh in an immersive exhibition, beginning on the 22nd of February. Over the course of a 35 minute tour through the 1500m² space, you can walk through the artist’s life and see more than 2000 images of his time in Arles, Paris and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. The Potato Eaters (1885), Sunflowers (1888), Starry Night (1889), Bedroom in Arles (1889)... Take a walk through a lifetime of masterpieces from this misunderstood genius. You’ve never seen Van Gogh like this before!
For more information and to book tickets: www.atelier-lumieres.com

What to listen to:
On the 8th of February, the Trianon will be alive with the rhythm of Portugal and the sounds of António Zambujo and Pedro Alves. The perfect blend of fado, cante Alentajano and Brazilian pop!
For tickets, go to: www.letrianon.fr
There’s something for the little ones too: “Les Enfantines” is back at the Maison de la Radio on the 23rd of February. Children from 3 to 6 years old will be taken in and given a sneak peek into the world of music. They’ll even be able to join in, clapping their hands or singing along with the musicians. So what’s this month’s theme? “A journey through film, with music from the composer Nino Rota”
For tickets, go to: www.maisondelaradio.fr
The Paris Philharmonic will also be holding a second weekend dedicated to Japanese culture from the 6th to the 10th of February. Come down and enjoy a series of conferences, traditional No and Kyogen theatre and concerts, two of which from Joe Hisaishi, the composer for Hayao Miyazaki. There’s everything you need to get a taste of Japanese culture.

What to do:
On the 24th of February, the Cité de l’Architecture & du patrimoine [the Architecture and Heritage Centre] will become a yoga studio, combining body and architecture in a wonderfully relaxing environment. With the theme of “peripheral support, or the art of leaning”, Yoga Cité will give beginners and pros the opportunity to harness body and mind within the calm, relaxing and inspiring spaces in the museum.

In Paris, there are so many romantic places to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your loved one. Among the more spectacular options is Oré by Alain Ducasse at the Château de Versailles, where you can dine like a king (and queen) in the restored 17th century salons on the first floor of the Pavillon Dufour and enjoy a spell-binding view of the Cour Royale.
If you’d rather stay in Paris, Thierry Marx has designed a special Valentine’s menu at his restaurant, the “58 Tour Eiffel” on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower. So what’s on the menu? Foie gras, sea bass fillet and a Grand Cru chocolate mousse cake - and of course, a bottle of champagne to accompany it.

On the 24th of February, the Château de Fontainebleau is opening its doors for a family-friendly Carnival. It’s the perfect opportunity to dress up, get your face painted, do some Renaissance dancing and even make your own crown. Are you ready for a trip back to the 17th century? Children will love dressing up as Renaissance princes and princesses for an afternoon of festive fun. There’s even a fencing workshop with an initiation into royal and military salutes and fighting techniques, and duelling demonstrations with one or two weapons. A fun way to learn about history!

Thanks for keeping up - we’ll see you next month!
