The already well-known and highly beloved park will transform into a colorful carnival starting July 2, 2023, and will stay that way up until the last few days of August. It will be one of the best places to visit with your entire family as the fair will feature all sorts of rides, games, and other fun attractions.

Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week (July 3 to 6)

Paris will once again show off its fashion A-game on the first week of July 2023. From the 3rd to the 6th, the city will host its bi-annual Haute Couture Fashion Week. Contrary to the more jam-packed prêt-à-porter (ready-to-wear) fashion weeks, this event is a more exclusive affair. Only a handful of designer brands, also known as “haute couture houses”, will take part. The usual names on the calendar include Christian Dior, Chanel, Schiaparelli, and Valentino. They will present their autumn 2023 haute couture collections, most of which will likely set new trends and end up on the backs of A-list celebrities when they step out on red-carpet events.

Bastille Day (July 14)

The month of July is notable in France mostly because of Bastille Day, which is on July 14th. Among the biggest French holidays in the yearly calendar, it's the country's Independence Day. And it means a lot too, considering that France was one of the first countries to be a republic. Though it specifically commemorates the day the French stormed the Bastille Prison in 1789, which ultimately sparked the French Revolution, it eventually became more of a National Day than anything else. And since Paris is the French capital, you can expect tons of grand celebrations on Bastille Day.

Firemen's Balls (July 13 to 14)

Among the many Bastille Day celebrations to look forward to this July 2023, you can't miss the annual Firemen's Balls! While its name suggests a more elegant, black-tie affair, this couldn't be farther from the truth! The Firemen's Balls in Paris are actually massive parties held at the main firehouses of the 20 arrondissements. There's loud music, lots of dancing, and free-flowing beer and champagne. Whichever arrondissement you'll be in, head to the main firehouse at around 21:00 (9:00) pm on July 13th and party until 4:00 am the next day (July 14th). You'll have a ball!

Paris l'Été Festival (July 17 to 31)

You remember that summer is the season for festivals in Paris, right? Well, there's another summer festival you can look forward to this July 2023: Paris l'Été Festival. Literally translated to English as “Paris in The Summer”, this event encompasses practically all the different neighborhoods in Paris. But instead of a big music festival, Paris l'Été Festival is more of a cluster of off-beat and relatively small-scale events that highlight the city's creative scene. They'll include mini-concerts, circus performances, art exhibitions, and more. They're all to show the world that Paris is still at the cusp of creativity
