FÊTE DES VENDANGES DE MONTMARTRE
From October 5th to 9th, the 89th edition of La Fête des Vendanges de Montmartre will celebrate equality.
Over the course of five days, beyond the Butte Montmartre, the eight districts of the 18th arrondissement of Paris, in their similarities and with their differences, are gathering to celebrate equality in every way. Through more than twenty artistic, cultural, gourmet, sporting and participatory events, the different districts will share with us their vision of equality.
People coming from the 18th arrondissement, from Paris and its suburbs, from Ile-de-France or from all over the globe, are welcome to take part in this joyful and festive “rendez-vous”, in order to celebrate our differences and to pay tribute to the richness of diversity.
All events are free-of-charge unless otherwise stated. Some events must be booked in advance or have special access conditions. Please have a look at the detailed program to come for further information.
