An exceptional celebration

France will provide unique celebrations to enjoy the Games in Paris.

Beyond the competitions, the ambition of Paris 2024 is to share the Olympic dream with everyone by providing the world with celebrations worthy of Paris’ exceptional heritage, a symbol of innovation and elegance.

Everything that characterises Paris (art, architecture, gastronomy, culture, fashion, music, etc.) will feature in this unique celebration.

 

The banks of the river Seine, a celebration site in the very heart of the city

The Seine river will connect the Olympic and Paralympic Village with the Paris Arena I, the Stade Yves-du-Manoir in Colombes, the Grand Palais, Les Invalides and the Eiffel Tower, all located on the banks of the river. The Seine, a true guiding thread for the project, will unite and inspire all participants in the Games.

The Live Sites, situated outside the sporting venues, will enable a broader audience to fully partake in the event.

Thanks to an ‘olympic trail’ along the Seine river, the whole city will be open to the world, offering entertainment and celebration acts (broadcasting, demonstrations, meeting with champions, shows, concerts, etc.) in emblematic venues in Paris:

  • At the Champ-de-Mars, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, close to the beach volley competition site
  • In the Parc de la Villette, an exceptional park that combines sports and culture
  • In the heart of La Défense, Paris’ business district, a model of modern architecture
  • At the World-Heritage site of the Château de Versailles, the most prestigious site, which will host the equestrian events.

Transformed into an Olympic Park, Paris will act as a backdrop for a major international celebration for athletes and spectators as well as viewers worldwide.
