Discover the Poetic Games of Paris

Poetry takes over Paris all summer long for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games! From poetic slogan displays and audio broadcasts to live performances… We're here to tell you all about this event that we are partner with.

The City of Paris, the Paris University Club, and the Théâtre de la Ville invite you to experience a summer themed around sports... and poetry! As part of "Paris Celebrates the Games," which features various free festivities in the capital during the Paris 2024 Games, discover the Poetic Games of Paris from May to September 2024. The program includes poetic slogan displays, audio broadcasts, live performances, poetic consultations, poetry expression panels, buses, poetry walks, and more. To conclude the event, join us on September 7, 2024, for a Poetic Marathon from Paris to Los Angeles. Twenty French-speaking authors, poets, slam artists, and rappers will pass the baton to ten poets from Los Angeles, the next host city for the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games, on Saturday, September 7, from noon to midnight.
