A unique meeting and sharing place in the heart of eastern Paris

This summer, the Château de Vincennes will be the place to be in the Val-de-Marne to experience and share the excitement of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. From 26 July to 11 August 2024, this emblematic monument to France's royal history will be transformed into a free fan zone, open to all, and promises to become an essential rendezvous for sports and culture enthusiasts.

The event will take place in the site's outdoor courtyards: in the Royal Courtyard, the competitions will be broadcast on a giant screen, putting spectators right at the heart of the action. In the main courtyard, visitors will be able to try their hand at a range of Olympic disciplines, including climbing, table tennis, volleyball, basketball and even surfing. These activities represent a perfect opportunity to explore traditional European sports, in partnership with INSEP and UFOLEP.

In terms of catering, the emphasis will be on local products, with cheese dairies, wine merchants and delicatessens all on hand to showcase the region's gastronomic riches. In this way, the City of Vincennes intends to promote and support local producers.
