7 evenings to celebrate July 14

14 Juillet

The Do It In Paris team has gathered the best activities to do in Paris to celebrate the National Day !

The legendary firefighters' ball, of course ...

Soirée du 14 juillet dans les casernes parisiennes

How to talk about July 14 without mentioning the subject of the cult firefighters' ball ? As usual, the balls take place in all the Parisian barracks on Saturday the 13th and some put the cover back on the evening of the 14th. There will be big rap like varietoche, but damned , how nice!

The best spots to meet beautiful kids? The feast of the Marais barracks , rue de Sévigné, or that of the rue Montmartre . We know some who have found love there. Who knows ? It might be more efficient and picturesque than Tinder .

Free for most barracks, a barrel made available to make donations. From 9 p.m. to 4 a.m.

List of barracks that are doing the trick in Paris and the suburbs.

Fluctuart organizes the biggest quayside party

Soirée du 14 juillet au Fluctact

Fluctuart is the first floating urban art center that everyone is talking about and which shakes the world of street art , house and R'N'B. Suffice to say that the evening on the barge facing the Eiffel Tower with a sunset will attract a lot of people.

On the decks: BOKI , the young trendy DJ will sign a mix with R'N'B resonances and Isma will share a house mix punctuated with small onions.

July 14, 8 p.m. to midnight, free.
