"Rendez-vous aux jardins" opens this year on the theme of garden music. From 2 to 4 June, the 200 participating parks and gardens in the Ile de France region will discover themselves and offer the public the opportunity to be charmed by the many sounds offered by nature mixed with artistic installations, music composed in reference to famous gardens, concerts or simple walks.

Every year, the Rendez-vous aux jardins aims to highlight the richness and variety of parks and gardens but also the preservation of a cultivated nature throughout the territory. They are also an opportunity to sensitize visitors to the many actions implemented by the Ministry of Culture, local authorities and private owners to conserve, restore, create gardens and transmit knowledge and know-how.

Organized by the Ministry of Culture, this national event is implemented on the Ile-de-France territory by the DRAC Île-de-France.

In Île-de-France: 400 events in 200 venues including 40 first-time participants and 22 remarkable gardens


This year, more than 200 venues are open to the public and nearly 400 animations are offered in the Ile-de-France region. The great diversity of parks and gardens, whether historical or contemporary, private or public, is represented. The owners and managers were invited to organize specific activities around the music of the garden for a moment of sharing and fun for all: guided thematic tours, visits with gardeners, musical walks, concerts, educational workshops, track games, conferences, etc.

For this 20th edition, we are pleased to welcome the Court of Artists at the Embassy of Argentina (75), the medieval garden of the castle of Blandy (77) or the botanical garden of Sannois (95) among the first participants.

The Rendez-vous aux jardins is also an opportunity to highlight the sites labeled "Remarkable garden". Created in 2004 by the Ministry of Culture, this label is awarded to parks and gardens of cultural, aesthetic, historical or botanical interest. The DRAC intervenes throughout the year to maintain, restore and enhance this exceptional Paris heritage. On this occasion, it publishes an updated edition of the Guide des jardins remarquables en Île-de-France, published by Éditions du Patrimoine and available in bookshops since April 6, which shows the extraordinary diversity of the 42 remarkable gardens labelled in Île-de-France.
