Calendar of Paris Events

Through October 3
Don't miss one of the most magical events of the summer, the Candlelit Evenings at the Château Vaux-le-Vicomte, just an hour south of Paris by RER and shuttle. Visit the family-owned palace and gardens that inspired Versailles by candlelight, including dinner in the gardens (or bring your own picnic or book a table for a gourmet meal starting at €59) and a fireworks finale. Every Saturday evening, entry €19.50. 

Through October 18
The 32nd annual funfair carnival, the Fête à Neu Neu, opens on August 30th in the Bois de Boulogne (Porte de la Muette, 16th, M° Rue de la Pompe). Open 4pm-midnight Mon, Tues, & Thurs; 2pm-midnight Wed & Fri; and noon to midnight Sat-Sun. Free entry, ATM, Vélib station, food tents and rides (tickets purchased onsite).  

September 11-13
The annual Fête de l'Humanité is three days of live music (65 acts including headliners Manu Chao, Texas, and Juliette Gréco), debates (because the French love a good debate), arts and cinema expositions, a bal populaire, a book fair, and activities for kids. The main sponsor/organizer is the daily newspaper L'Humanité, whose motto is "Envie de Changer Le Monde" (The desire to change the world), so you can imagine it's quite a leftie leaning festival where politics, social justice and liberty are the main stars. This year it takes place in La Corneuve (northeast suburbs), and three-day passes are just €32 (€35 at the door; camping and parking also possible).

Looking for a convenient and inexpensive hotel at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport? Try the Hotel Ibis CDG Aéroport-Gares, located at terminal 3 right next to the RER station into Paris. Free airport shuttles go between the terminals, or you can catch the hotel’s own shuttle. Rooms (there are 556 of them) are compact, but clean and have all the modern conveniences like telephone with voice mail, WiFi internet access and satellite TV. Prices €79-€110 per night. Warning: While the Paris Metro runs until 1am, the RER B between the airport and Paris stops at midnight (then you’re stuck waiting for the hourly night bus or taking a taxi for about €50).
