Fête des Vendanges
09/10/2019 - 13/10/2019
A weekend of celebrating the wine harvest.
For more than 80 years, winemakers in Montmartre have been harvesting their wine (that's right, in central Paris!) and celebrating it at this jolly festival. Locals, wine lovers and curious passers-by stop to taste this year's wine at the Fête des Vendanges in Montmartre. Vines have been grown on the slopes of Montmartre since the 12th century but it was only in 1934 under the patronage of Mistinguett and Fernandel that this wine harvest festival was launched for the first time. This annual meeting takes place on the second weekend of October, and it's a classic Parisian event: mingle among the crowds and enjoy the friendly and fun atmosphere, as well as the local wine.
