    We'll be in Paris the first week in September. Besides Bonjour Paris, which is a favorite newsletter, can you recommend sites to search for events/happenings (beyond museums) from Sept. 2-6? Thank you.

    The article was published on the 6th of April, prior to the events, though some of our readers might not have seen the article until it could be sent out in the newsletter, the following week. Our free weekly newsletter is only published once a week.

    Thank you Ellen! Yes this month most events were happening quite early so I had to really try and squeeze it in to not miss too much! I try and include a mix of events which are running at different times throughout the month where possible so I will see what May brings and try not to miss anything next time! Thanks for your feedback and have a lovely weekend!

    Too bad Bonjour Paris did not publish this piece until half the events had already taken place. You do a good job of uncovering hidden gems though, Ms. Stewart.
