May 2024 will be one of the best times to be in Paris. For one thing, it's nearing the Paris 2024 Olympics so energy here is at an all-time high. The city is preparing for one of the biggest events they'll host in a long time, but at the same time, they're not so busy yet that things are already hectic. Overall, the French capital will remain calm but lively next month, as well as eventful! Apart from Taylor Swift and Bruce Springsteen performing here live, there's also Labor Day, Mother's Day, Le Châtelet Jazz Festival, and the French Bread Festival to look forward to.

Fête du Travail (May 1)

The liveliness in Paris this May 2024 will start as early as the first day of the month. Much like the rest of the world, the French capital will celebrate Labor Day, or Fête du Travail, on May 1st. On this day, many of the city's workers get to enjoy some free time. Expect Parisians to go out and eat at popular restaurants, visit museums, play in the parks, and more. Some would even escape to the French Riviera or nearby provinces just to take a break from the bustling metropolis.

Fête du Pain (May 13 to 21)

Parisians love the baguette more than the rest of the world probably knows. They've even made a whole festival about it—Fête du Pain—and it's usually celebrated every May. Set on the plaza in front of the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral, many of the city's bakers will gather and to sell and showcase their most delicious works. If you want to try an authentic French baguette in Paris, going here is your best bet. Though bread is the main star of the show, the festival actually commemorates Saint-Honoré, the patron saint of bakers, flour merchants, and the like.

Mother's Day (May 26)

Mother's Day is another of the many highly anticipated holidays in France. The French are as appreciative of their mothers as the Spanish and the Italians are, so Mother's Day is often a big deal in the country. Especially in the capital city! You'll find that celebrating Mother's Day in Paris is a lot more exciting than you realize. You can take her to the city's best restaurants, the most charming cafes, visit museums together, stroll through its beautiful parks, and more. The holiday is set for May 26 since the French usually celebrate it on the last Sunday of May.
