Steeped in history, style and culture, the City of Light has more than enough to draw visitors all year around – and that’s before we even get started on the food and wine. But there are certain times of year when a trip to Paris can be extra-special. For music fans, the calendar teems with festivals for all tastes, from leftfield jazz to alternative rock to mainstream pop. There’s also a huge number of restaurant conventions that aim to showcase France’s rich culinary heritage. The French capital’s Pride celebrations, too, are matchless. Not even to mention a whole host of other hot-ticket film, fashion and sporting events that take place throughout the year. Looking to coincide your visit with a blowout expo or festival? This is our pick of the best annual events in Paris.
