L'Été du canal

L'été du canal

This summer, the Ourcq river will come alive once again for the 2020 Eté du Canal festival, where you can party your holidays away in the Parisian sunshine with music, beach vibes, strolls along the quayside and fun out on the water.

For two months this summer, the area in and around the river in north-eastern Paris will be the place to be.

On the water, boats are waiting to take you on shuttle trips to the various festival sites, cultural cruises with commentary, and exhibition and cinema package trips. And music lovers can sail to the rhythms of rap, jazz, classical and electro music to ensure that the summer goes with a swing.

Meanwhile, on the banks, the atmosphere is one of sport for all. Enjoy the nautical activities on offer in the towns along the Canal de l’Ourcq. At Bobigny, Noisy/Bondy, Pantin and Aulnay-sous-Bois, a number of amazing leisure facilities and nautical venues are putting on a range of free activities on the water as a prelude to the forthcoming 2024 Olympics. Try your hand at pedal boats, kayaks, inflatable boats and even paddling. It’s a great way to cool down in the summer heat.

And there’s a very attractive cultural programme on offer too. With exhibitions and culturally-themed barges, the contemporary arts are finding new vehicles of expression, to the delight of lovers of the genre and newcomers alike. There are even creative workshops where you can try your hand at street art and screen printing. And music and cinema have their own special place in this unusual year, with a selection of open-air concerts and films at the 6b and the La Villette park.

History is on the programme at this 14th edition of the “Canal in Summer” event to celebrate the bicentenary of the St Denis canal through guided tours on foot and bicycle, and even by canoe, themed on the roles of waterways, and also street art and cinema.

It’s shaping up to be a festive, fun summer for sharing with family and friends in a relaxed musical atmosphere!
