What to Expect in Paris This May 2022


Fête du Travail (May 1)

The month of May has many holidays in France so you can expect that Paris will be lively because of them. The very first day of the month is already a holiday—'Fête du Travail' or Labor Day. France, just like the rest of the world, celebrates Labor Day every May 1st. It's a time when all those who work in the country get to enjoy a day off, not go to work, and have a good time with friends and family. Because of this, you can expect the many restaurants, parks, museums, and other recreational areas in Paris to be filled with lots of people.

La Fête de la Victoire (May 8)

La Fête de la Victoire is also a national holiday to look forward to in Paris this May 2022. Celebrated every May 8th, this day commemorates the official end of World War II. It's an international holiday that's deeply important to France, one of the many countries that were devasted during the historic conflict. On this day, you can expect a grand celebration on the Champs-Élysées, particularly near the Arc de Triomphe. French veterans and their families, as well as the president of France, all gather to solemnly remember all the lives lost during the Second World War.

EDM Festivals at The Bois de Vincennes (Starts on May 8)

Truth be told, the Bois de Vincennes is among the more underrated parks in Paris. Though it's definitely among the city's most beautiful areas, it's become more known as a place to walk dogs or family picnics. It doesn't have the same fame as Jardin Des Tuileries or Jardin du Luxembourg. However come May 2022, the Bois de Vincennes will turn into the sickest EDM festival in the French capital! Famous DJs, led by French EDM artist Jacques Fromage, are set to play their best sets on May 8 and May 22, 2022. You won't want to miss this rave!

La Nuit des Musées (May 14)

If you're an art or history buff, you'll want to be in Paris on May 14, 2022. This is the date for this year's La Nuit des Musées or 'Night at the Museums.' On this special day—or rather, night—many of Paris's famous museums stay open until the wee hours of the night. And the best part? You can enter free of charge. Many of these iconic galleries cost a pretty penny, but for one night only, you visit them without having to pay anything at all. Expect it to be a lively night!

Le Printemps des Rues (May 28 to 29)

Come May 28 to 29, 2022, another festival will set the French capital ablaze again. It's the 'Le Printemps des Rues' or the 'Spring Street Festival,' which will take place in the 10th arrondissement of Paris. During this time, the streets along the Saint-Martin canal and nearby areas set the stage for breakdancing performances, comedy skits, live theater, street art installations, and more. Just as its name says, the Spring Street Festival is all about presenting the city's exceptional creativity on the streets, allowing locals and tourists alike to witness the sheer artistic velocity of Paris in person.

Mother's Day (May 29)

While the rest of the world will celebrate Mother's Day on May 8, 2022, Paris and the rest of France will celebrate La Fête de Mère on May 29, 2022, instead. Nevertheless, the only difference is with the date. Just like in other countries, the French will commemorate their mothers and mother figures on this special day. They'll normally present them with all sorts of gifts, ranging from bouquets of flowers to expensive perfume and jewelry. Some would let them relax in their luxury homes and take over the cooking and cleaning, while others will go as far as to treat their mothers to a meal in the finest Michelin-starred restaurants in Paris.
