PhotoSaintGermain (November 2 to 25)

Throughout the large Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, various art galleries will take part in PhotoSaintGermain, a neighborhood-wide photo exhibit. It's an annual event that has long highlighted the “Design District” in this part of the city. Though not widely famous, PhotoSaintGermain has remained a prestigious event for veteran and emerging photographers alike. The categories range from nature-centric to human portraits, oftentimes even venturing into fashion photography territory. It's a great way to explore the city's modern art scene in contrast to its more famous classical museums. Moreover, the event offers the perfect platform for up-and-coming photographers to gain more attention.

Christmas Window Displays Unveiling (Begins on November 8)

Paris is one of those cities that start preparing for the holiday season as early as November. This is thanks in large part to the famous department stores in Paris. This year, both Printemps Haussmann and BHV Marais will unveil their Christmas window displays on November 8th. As will La Samaritaine, which will likely feature dancing mannequins and bright lights. A week later, the iconic Galeries Lafayette will then reveal theirs too, often a highly-anticipated display for locals and tourists alike. Beautiful and beguiling, these extravagant displays embody how magical it is to spend Christmas in Paris.

Armistice Day (November 11)

On November 11, 1918, an armistice was reached in Europe that effectively ended World War I. Since France took part in the war and lost many lives as a result, this day has become as important as the country's own national holidays. As such, Armistice Day is always a big deal in Paris. Continuing on its tradition, November 11, 2023, will see the French capital take part in a somber ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe. Here, the French president will lay a tri-colored wreath by the eternal flame at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Later in the evening, the city will then participate in a solemn vigil in memory of the fallen French soldiers.

Christmas at Disneyland Paris (Begins on November 11)

Those who don't want to take part in the somber Armistice Day festivities will perhaps prefer to be at Disneyland Paris this November 11, 2023. This day marks the start of the beloved theme park's month-and-a-half-long holiday festival, entitled “Enchanted Christmas.” Starting on this day, the park will be decorated with garlands, twinkling lights, and characters from your favorite Disney films will wear their “gay apparel” for all the world to see. Of course, there will also be holiday parades, Christmas shows, and more. All these festivities will go on until early January.

Christmas Markets Opening (Begins on November 16)

Part of what makes spending the holiday season in Paris—or in Europe, in general—so amazing is getting to see its magical Christmas markets in real life. The French capital itself has many, and most of them will start up as early as November 2023. Look out for the Tuileries Garden Christmas Market, for example, which will open on November 19th. The La Defense Christmas Market will start before that on November 16th. And as the month goes on, more and more of these holiday fairs will take over Paris. Fortunately, they'll remain open until January 2024.

Champs-Élysées Christmas Lighting Ceremony (November 19)

Perhaps one of the most famous sights in Paris during this time of the year is the Champs-Élysées. Every year, this world-famous avenue lights up for the holiday season. The trees that line the Champs-Élysées will be covered in twinkling lights and the entire place almost looks like a Christmas wonderland. And when will this all start? On November 19, 2023! On this day, the city will host a lighting ceremony, effectively starting the Christmas season in Paris. Once lit up, the lights will start on Champs-Élysées until January 2, 2024.

Festival of Lights at Jardin des Plantes (Begins on November 22)

The Champs-Élysées won't be the only place to light up this November 2023 in Paris. Over at Jardin des Plantes in the 5th arrondissement, the park will start its annual Festival of Lights. These aren't your regular Christmas lights, mind you. Throughout the beguiling 17th-century botanical gardens, you'll see all sorts of light installations and art displays. They're all bright and colorful, big and beautiful in a way that almost shames Disneyland Paris. Some displays feature giant flowers, massive animals, and more. It's a definite must-see for anyone who appreciates art and would want to have a good time in Paris this Christmas.
