Welcome to the July 2017 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 July 2017

Experience:
Connoisseurs take note … “Paris Quartier d’été” has had a facelift! After 27 years’ outstanding service, the summer event has changed its name and is now known as “Festival Paris l’été”. A new impetus for this Paris institution! From 17 July to 5 August 2017, you’ll find all kinds of entertainment, - theatre, dance, circus, street arts -, concerts and meetings all over Paris. Among the events not to be missed: “La ville éphémère” by Olivier Grossetête, with its giant cardboard sculptures, at La Villette, or the broadcasting on 18 and 19 July, in the Louvre Museum’s Cour Carrée, of some of the performances given at the Avignon Festival, in the main courtyard of the Palace of the Popes.
You’ll find the full programme on: www.parislete.fr
Fancy getting away from Paris for an evening out of time? Then come to the “Soirées aux Chandelles” at the Château de Vaux le Vicomte, just 50 km from the capital! Every Saturday evening until 7 October, you can enjoy an evening visit and stroll through the château and its garden, lit by 2000 candles. A magical setting against a backdrop of classical music with, perhaps, a surprise into the bargain… A visitor is chosen to start off the firework display every Saturday evening!
For daytime visits, a wide range of activities, from croquet to treasure hunts, are also available to families at weekends, all on the theme of La Fontaine’s fables. Details and information on: www.vaux-le-vicomte.com

See: Looking for ideas to keep the kids occupied? Paris Cinémathèque has the answer with the “Mômes & Cie” exhibition. Designed for youngsters, the exhibition focuses on children’s appearances in films, from Kirikou to Harry Potter but also gives adults an opportunity to rediscover some of the finest children’s roles in the films directed by François Truffaut and Jacques Demy. Until 30 July 2017.
For fashion victims: from 7 July, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs is celebrating 70 years of House of Dior design with a magnificent exhibition based on its founder, Christian Dior (1905-1957). This huge retrospective presents over 400 of the designer’s dresses which revolutionised post-war fashions and brought a new freedom into women’s wardrobes.
July will also be an opportunity to discover the Cuban National Ballet at the Salle Pleyel, from the 6th to the 20th. The programme consists of two classical ballets, Giselle and Don Quixote. And you can also attend the dancers’ Sunday morning training sessions on the Salle Pleyel stage.
Further information on: www.balletnationaldecuba.valprod.fr. Bookings on: 01 76 49 43 13.

Listen: Cut Killer, Kool G Ram, The Underachievers… The Paris Hip Hop Festival has plenty of surprises in store from 24 June to 9 July. N.B. the new project known as “Paris Hip Hop Closing à Périphérique, La Villette” will be hosting 20 artistes on 8 and 9 July for outdoor rap concerts. In addition to the concerts, the “Quinzaine du Hip Hop” will be offering evening events, graffiti sessions, dance, films and conferences.
For opera buffs: from 10 June to 13 July, the Palais Garnier is presenting Rossini’s “La Cenerentola”, directed by Guillaume Gallienne, a member of the Comédie-Française and winner of a “César” award for his film “Guillaume et les garçons, à table!” Inspired by Perrault’s tale, “La Cenerentola” tells the story of a young woman, better known as Cinderella, treated as a slave by her stepmother and two stepsisters.
Bookings: www.operadeparis.fr

Do: Looking for intrigue and adventure? Try to solve the riddle of the Paris Treasure Hunt, which will take place in the capital’s 15 arrondissements on Saturday 8 July 2017. The theme is “taste” and the aim is to find a famous chef, Guy Schloren, who, drugged by his horrible rival Henri de Vautour following a dubious quarrel over cooking matters, has mysteriously disappeared... On each of the 35 paper version trails and 8 digital trails, the 19,000 registered apprentice kitchen boys, aged 7 to 77, will have 2 hours in which to find him. The partner shops and local associations will help them in their quest by providing clues to make up an Identikit photo of the Chef... Once they’ve collected all this information, they can use it to decode a final message that will lead them to Guy Schloren.
N.B. Several trails will be adapted to English speakers, families with or without pushchairs and the disabled.
Participation is free and open to everyone!
When does “Paris Plages” open? From 8 July to 3 September, boating enthusiasts can enjoy using an enormous swimming pool in the Bassin de la Villette and a wide range of activities including table football tournaments, beach volleyball, tai-chi sessions, dance workshops and a free library. Deckchairs for relaxing, water misters, refreshment and ice cream stalls will also be available! Another innovation this year is that Paris Plages will be without sand.
Finally, for ice cream lovers, Carte d’Or has opened a temporary shop at 18 rue de Turenne, in the 4th arrondissement. The iced cakes are designed by chef Yannick Tranchant but you can also make up your own dessert to suit your taste.
Close by, at 14 rue Pavée, L’Eclair de Génie is offering its iced “Barlettes”, coated with chocolate and pecan nut, hazelnut, raspberry or even peanut slivers. A delicacy that’s easy to take away and bite into. Simply mouth-watering!

Have a great July, everyone!
We’ll be back on 1st August!
