La fête du pain – Bread Festival Paris, May 8 – 16

May 8th, 2013

The 18th annual Fête du Pain (bread festival)  kicks off today on the plaza in front of Notre Dame!  Under the tent, there’ll be a giant oven where the public can watch bread being made – and of course sample.  Special activities depending on the day.  Friday there’ll be a competition to determine the best croissant in the Ile-de-France.  Saturday the focus turns to baguettes.  The last several days are devoted to kids and school groups.  Daily 9 – 6.  Free.

An extra treat if you happen to be visiting Notre Dame this weekend.  Or, if that wasn’t already in your plans, maybe it should be!
