Paris News 6 – Autumn and Winter Events in Paris

It ’s only 3 months left this year. There are numerous events throughout the year in Paris, but for those who plan to visit Paris from October to December this year, we will introduce a variety of interesting events. The last unforgettable memories of this year are in Paris!

Famous autumn event

 Fashion Week Prét à Porter

During this period, the ready-to-wear fashion show of the spring / summer collection will be held the following year. Opportunity for those interested in mode. However, it seems quite difficult to get an invitation ticket. If you’re a mode reporter or student, or someone who is directly involved in the mode maison, it’s almost mission-impossible to watch the show directly for the general public.

Therefore, we will inform you more information than one ear. However, please note that it will not always succeed. On the day of the fashion show of the designer who has starred this, please visit the venue a little earlier than the scheduled time. And it will be in the standing column. In the unlikely event that there are only a few invitees planned, the organizer will select a public from the standing line and allow admission to fill the vacancy. However, the dress and atmosphere are quite fashionable, and it is not good if you are not in a conspicuous outfit or unusual style.

 Nuit Blanche

“Neuy Blanche” is held every year in Paris on the first weekend of October. Translated as it is, “white night”, this means “night that never sleeps”. Do you know what the event is?
This event, which began in 2002 in Paris, is the 16th cultural event this year. Opening public spaces to the public all night, providing artworks, videos, photos, illumination performances, etc. for free. This year, you can choose from two courses in the Chapel district of Paris 18th district and the Les Halles district of 1st district. After all, it is a non-stop event all night (7pm to 7am the next morning), so it’s a unique opportunity to “break the night” in Paris. In addition, public facilities such as metro and bus are moving all night, so it is very convenient. Please enjoy Paris night.

Famous even in winter

 La Toussaint

This day is a French holiday. In Japanese, it is translated as “Holiday of All Saints”, but it is like “Obon” in Japan. The next day, the day of the visit to the grave where the graves in France overlap with the “Day of the Dead La fête des morts”. It may be a good opportunity to take a walk through a typical grave in Paris.

 December 24-25: Christmas Noël

The representative of the Paris event in December is Christmas. Paris will shine with Christmas illuminations and you will want to walk around Paris forgetting the cold. Also, at this time, Christmas cities are opened around Paris. It sells a variety of folk crafts that are unique to France, making it an ideal souvenir.

By the way, I always feel that it is Christmas time. Why is the illumination in Paris so beautiful? In Tokyo and other big cities in Japan, we spend a lot of money competing for Christmas decorations, but is there anything missing from Paris? Not only because Christmas is inherently Catholic, but because of its depth, in my opinion, the remaining Parisian buildings from the late 19th century greatly supported the Christmas atmosphere. I feel.

Unique event

 Montmartre Mowing Festival La fête des vendanges Montmartre

Every October, the season for mowing is reached throughout France. Paris is no exception. This is the case of Montmartre’s vineyards, where only one place remains in Paris. This year is a festival that welcomes Portugal as an invited country. If you are in Paris on this occasion, which is only once a year, don’t miss this opportunity! It would be nice if you could make a harvest of wine from Paris!

 Chocolate Festival Le Salon du chocolat

Gather chocolate big fans! Chocolate from all over the world gathers at this event that also participates from Japan. It is a salon where you can know all information related to chocolate and cacao. In Japan, it was held at the beginning of February this year and became a hot topic, but it will be held in Paris this October. Isn’t it a unique opportunity to know the difference between Japanese and French chocolate?

 November 16 Beaujolais Nouveau Day! La Fête de Beaujolais Nouveau

Have you waited? It is the day of the opening of Beaujolais Nouveau. In Japan, you can taste 8 hours earlier than France because of the time difference, but after all you want to drink Beaujolais Nouveau in France. Originally in France, wine made from the grapes harvested that year is December 15th, but Beaujolais Nouveau is an exception. However, an appellation called “Beaujolais Nouveau” is required. Compared to ordinary Beaujolais red wine, it has a slightly sour and fruity taste. Although it has a slight blue odor, French people drink it as an aperitif or as a table wine for light meals. How about authentic French Beaujolais Nouveau as a souvenir to Japan?
