Carnival of Women 2020 in Paris

Women's Carnival or Laundry Day

  • On March 22nd, the women's carnival brings back to honour an old festive tradition of the mid-Lent celebration once organised by Parisian laundresses.
  • On this occasion, women are the queens of the parade and men are required to dress as women to be part of the party!
  • Of course you can participate, in disguise or not.
  • After le carnaval de Paris - Promenade du Bœuf Gras  which takes place every year on the Sunday before Mardi Gras, the women's carnival is the mid-Lent carnival.
  • It's a parade in the Marais district.
