Antiques Fair in Paris - MAY

Hi everyone,
Does anyone know the exact date of the week-long antiques fair being held in May at Carre` Rive Gauche, St.Germain-des-Pres?

I don't know about a fair at Carre Rive Gauche but there is a huge brocante at Bastille in May. It takes up the whole exhibition hall and then runs along both sides of the Seine at Arsenale on the outside. We always plan our November trips to take in the winter fair. I can't imagine any better !

Not sure that the one you are looking for is listed, but attached is a great site for markets and dates. I too concur that the Bastille show is worth while. The dealers represent the full spectrum of antiques in France.

Well it looks like the handy little book I purchased called "InsideOut Paris" must be out of date (although nowhere does it give a printed date) - so who knows, must be old.
Thought I would be in luck and it would be on between 16th-23rd.

There are various antiques fairs in Paris all yeare and the dates often change a bit. I think the one you are referring to occurs May 30th to June 1st this year. Here is one Parisian antiques dealer's category showing where they are displaying, and they list that show and its dates

There is also an antiques fair as part of the annual Foire St Germain, and it takes place June 5th to 16th this year at place St Sulpice (the antiques part).

Tod, just so you are not confused the brocante in May is at Bastille. Bercy Village is only in January.

They usually send out lots of free tickets to various hotels around town, so check your hotel or any that you happen to be passing.
