The season for jazz festivals around Paris is happening all summer long. The Paris Jazz Festival begins the last weekend of June and continues until the last weekend in July. Parc Floral Vincennes is the site of the festival and the Paris botanical gardens (Jardin botannique de Paris).
The Jazz Tree (pictured) is the symbol of the new jazz website for the city of Paris. The city of Paris is deeply rooted in music and the trunk represents the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The leaves and branches suggest Paris’s love of cultural blend, exploration and discovery found through world jazz events.
