President Tony Estanguet of Paris 2024 stated at a press conference that the Organizing Committee’s goal is to include all of France in the celebrations for the world’s greatest sporting competition. “Our motto is ‘Games Wide Open,’ and this needs to be written into the celebrations for Paris 2024,” Estanguet said.

The schedule of celebration locations for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, which will see France vibrate to the beat of Paris 2024 for four months, was unveiled on Monday, July 24.

The Olympic Games throughout Paris

There will be plenty of places to celebrate in the French capital, including Champions Park at the Trocadéro. This location, which faces the Eiffel Tower, will be the must-visit gathering place for all sports enthusiasts worldwide to commemorate medals and accomplishments of athletes. All of the medalists will have the opportunity to interact with thousands of fans for the first time in the history of the Olympic Summer Games.

The Olympic and Paralympic medal winners of France will visit Club France in Parc de la Villette, which is located in the northeast of Paris, from July 27 to August 11, 2024, and from August 29 to September 8, 2024. More than 300 hours of live broadcasting are planned to bring the Games to over 700,000 viewers at Club France at La Villette.

Everywhere in Paris, the Off des Jeux festival will have an impact with the Olympic and Paralympic celebrations. This free event, which is well-liked by families because of its festive atmosphere, will feature athletic and cultural events along with food and competition screenings.

The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, expressed the wish of her city to invite as many people as possible to participate in the festivities. “Paris wants people to share during the games. In keeping with that, we wish for everyone to have access to the celebration locations.”

The festivities will be linked by the Seine and its canals, especially the Canal Saint-Denis, which has been completely refurbished for the Games. The main route connecting the Olympic and Paralympic venues begins at Club France in La Villette and travels through the Stade de France and Aquatics Center.

Several areas will be set up at the Georges-Valbon Park in La Courneuve, in the French department of Seine-Saint-Denis, which is located north of Paris, to watch the Games, go to concerts, practice sports, or even take in the views from an 80-meter skyliner.

The whole of France dressed in Paralympic and Olympic colors

The organizing groups known as “Terre de Jeux 2024” have established a series of celebration locations known as “Paris 2024 Clubs,” which will host athletic, cultural, and celebratory events.

The majority of the host communities will provide Paris 2024 Clubs; football matches will be held at least once at a celebration site in each of the following cities: Bordeaux, Lyon, Nantes, Nice, Paris, Saint-Etienne, and Marseille; in addition, Lille and Tahiti, the location of the surfing, will host events.

The Olympic gold medallist in canoe slalom who won three gold medals in the sport said, “Since the beginning, we have been obsessed with releasing the magic of the Games, and we want these celebrations to be as open as possible.”

“Having the athletes and fans continue the celebrations at Champions Park, in a venue as esteemed as the Trocadero, is a very powerful thing.”
