Carnival of Women 2020 in Paris

The carnival of the women or the Festival of the Whitewashers

  • On March 22nd, the women's carnival brings back to life an old festive tradition of the mid-Lent festival organized in the past by the Parisian laundresses.
  • On this occasion, women are the queens of the parade and men are required to dress up as women to be part of the party!
  • Of course participate who wants, disguised or not.
  • After le carnaval de Paris - Promenade du B?uf Gras  which takes place every year on the Sunday before Mardi Gras, the women's carnival is the carnival of mid-Lent.
  • It is a parade in the Marais district.
