Leap Hop Paris Montmartre Kids Harvest Festival

It’s this time of the year again in Paris: time for the Harvest Festival in Montmartre.  This edition will be the 82nd Harvest Festival and the theme is “Our Planet”.  Starting in 1934, Parisians have celebrated every year the harvest from the small vineyard perched on top of Montmartre in the north of Paris.  This is the only time of the year that the vineyard is open to the public.  Reservations are necessary for the visit on October 9.

The whole neighbourhood participates in this 5-day event with producers showing off delicacies at the “Taste Festival” for three days from October 9 to 11.  Take your kids for a stroll in the crowded streets of Montmartre for a chance to sample food and participate in one of the many workshops relating to cooking, wine-making and food offered over the weekend.  There will also be a parade on Saturday and in the evening what promises to be an amazing fireworks show.
