Dear Mr. Demo,

As Paris prepares to welcome athletes from all over the world to celebrate sporting excellence for the 2024 Olympics, the city is also lighting up with a rich cultural scene. From art exhibitions to musical performances and dance shows, Paris is getting alive with cultural events that will run alongside the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.



A Nous Les Stades! A history of women's sport

The BnF François-Mitterrand presents the historical panorama of women's sport in an exhibition running from May 22 to October 13. For a long time a male domain, sport was a closed space for women. The relationship between sport and women is intimately linked to the status of women in society. The story of this relationship is one of broken taboos, breaking rules and norms that have gradually enabled women to enter a space that had been denied to them for so long.

BnF François-Mitterrand, Quai François Mauriac, Paris 13e, May 22 to October 13.


La Terrasse des Jeux

Set up on the Town Hall square, the Terrasse des Jeux is a summer must-see, labeled "Club 2024" by the Paris 2024 Games organizing committee. From July 14 to September 8, 2024, it invites residents and visitors to celebrate together for free, offering 51 days of continuous entertainment. Visitors can follow the competitions live on two giant screens, try their hand at various sports in six dedicated areas, and watch a variety of performances on the main stage. A workshop highlights local initiatives, raising awareness of societal and environmental issues through responsible cooking and recycling workshops, board games and quizzes.

Parvis de l'Hôtel de Ville, Paris 4e, July 14 to September 8.



July 14th fireworks

The long awaited fireworks display from the Eiffel Tower returns on the evening of July 14, 2024, with a special edition for the Paris Olympics on the theme of " Liberty". This celebration is timed to coincide with the French National Holiday, marking the storming of the Bastille, and includes a military parade moved to Avenue Foch. In Paris, the fireworks display is fired from the Eiffel Tower and Trocadero gardens, providing an iconic show. All night long, firemen's balls will entertain the city. After the success of the previous edition on the theme "Carpe Diem", this year's theme, " Liberty", invites us to celebrate the national holiday as a moment of escape and unity.


In addition to these three flagship events, the Molière Hotel continues to propose a series of one-off events in the same period and with the same theme as the Olympic Games and sport:


Paul Émile d'Entremont's documentary Franchir la ligne explores the taboo of homosexuality in sport by giving voice to LGBTQI+ athletes who courageously share their experiences to break down prejudice.

Screening June 18 at 8:00 pm, Canadian Cultural Centre, 130 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Paris 8e




Gaspare Spontini's three-act opera La Vestale, created in 1807 and absent from the Opéra national de Paris stage for over 150 years, returns in a French version directed by Lydia Steier and conducted by Bertrand de Billy. It tackles the themes of militaristic zeal and religious extremism, while symbolizing unity and peace through the vestal flame, the same flame that traditionally marks the start of the Olympic Games.

June 15 to July 11, Opéra Bastille, place de la Bastille, Paris 11e


Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire presents Louis Verret's solo exhibition, L'Atlas, joueur. A series of watercolors on paper that question the relationship between the spectacle of soccer and a political history of the image.

June 19 to July 20, Galerie Les Filles du calvaire, 17 rue des Filles du calvaire, Paris 3e.



Rachid Ouramdane, choreographer and director of Chaillot - Théâtre national de la Danse, and the acrobats of Compagnie XY have created a new show, Möbius Morphosis. They will present it to the public on the Place du Panthéon.

July 16, 17 and 18, place du Panthéon, Paris 5e


Olympism, a history of the world is a brand-new exhibition that retraces over a century of social and political history through 33 Olympic Games. It features 400 original objects and documents that illustrate the major crises, struggles and achievements that have shaped our contemporary world.

Until September 8, Palais de la Porte Dorée, 293 avenue Daumesnil, Paris 12e.


Atelier Rodin, Jouez, Créez, Bougez
To coincide with the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Atelier Rodin is offering a third interactive edition to discover and understand sculpture through movement and play - with new features to entertain and educate young and old alike.
