Avenue des Champs-Élysées, De l'Arc de Triomphe à la place de la Concorde - 75008 Paris
Tropical rhythms take over.
On the first weekend in July, an exotic flavour takes over Paris. The city bubbles over with tropical Caribbean life during the city's well-established Tropical Carnival. Organised by the Mairie de Paris together with the Fédération du Carnaval Tropical de Paris, the Tropical Caribbean puts the spotlight on music and dance, with groups from France and also many from the Antilles (Guadeloupe, Martinique, Reunion, Guyana).
Other countries are also honoured with a special theme for the event such as China, Brazil and Colombia in previous years.
In the early afternoon, over 4,000 dancers and a dozen floats from around the world participate in the parade through the Champs-Elysées. A fun and friendly event for all to enjoy.
