Published on 4 August 2013 in Events
Paris summer festivals present Summer Canal until August 25, 2013. Join in events from Paris to Seine Saint Denis on the Canal de l'Ourcq where sailing, sunbathing, music and culture are on the agenda. Just a few Metro stops from the festivities, the charming Les Plumes Hotel is an exceptional choice for waterside fun.
Paris summer festivals allow you to discover the City of Light from the water
Summer Canal Festival on the Ourcq is returning to the city until August 25th. This incomparable yearly event is your opportunity to see Paris as never before, from one of its most beautiful and historic waterways.
Take the shuttle trip from Bassin de la Villette (Paris-Plages) to see an ever changing canalside vista taking in Parc de la Villette, Bobigny and many other noteable stops along the way.
Try one of the magical Eté du Canal culture cruises where cinema lovers can watch films on board while learning about the history of film in Saint Denis. Theatre lovers can enjoy an individual and exciting trip with performers on board acting as guides, and passengers can also discover the history and changing face of the river Ourcq over the years.
Dance the night away each weekend, when groups such as Balapaname and La Baronne, among others bring back the popular street dance culture of yesteryear. Everything from whirling gypsy music to accordion and French chanson favourites allow you to really get into the spirit of the dance on the banks of the canal.
All summer, barges on the canal feature free exhibitions, live shows music and more, while a retrospective of giant photographs adorns the facade of the station at Saint Denis. Be a part of this exciting event for a summer to remember in Paris.
