Fall Garden Festival Paris

September 19th, 2013

The Fête des Jardins 2013, this weekend in Paris (September 21 and 22).  Several small hidden gardens, not usually open to the public, are on the program (e.g the garden of the Institut Catholique in the 6th) in addition to many of the community gardens scattered around the city.  Many parks have programmed special events – concerts are planned in several parks (e.g. Parc Montsouris at 4 pm both Saturday and Sunday) as well as special activities for kids and demonstrations related to various horticultural professions.  For the entire program (in French) click here.

PS – the weather forecast is for dry and sunny after a week of clouds and storms so it should be the perfect opportunity to explores Parisian gardens!  Enjoy yourself outdoors if you’re visiting Paris this weekend!
