When are the Paris 2024 Olympics, anyway?
They’ll take place from July 26 to August 11 2024.
Where in Paris are the Olympics being held?
Paris itself will have 15 venues, including landmarks like the Grand Palais and Roland Garros stadium as well as a temporary arena right next to the Eiffel Tower. But despite the name, the Paris 2024 Olympic Games won’t just be held in Paris – they’ll take place throughout France. Cities like Bordeaux, Nice and Lyon will host football games, the sailing will be in Marseille and the surfing competition will take place on the other side of the world on the French-governed island of Tahiti.
