One week-end per month from June to September, the beach 6b in Paris Saint-Denis livens up the banks of canal Saint-Denis ! 6b proposes many activities most of which are free. The beach 6b is 3,000m² of open air space covered in sand.
This relaxation area boasts deck-chairs and parasols, a mini-golf and a badminton court and creative workshops. It is possible to eat and drink : some vegetarian stands, lemonade, home-made iced-tea, organic fruit juices, Demory home-made beers and natural wine. Concerts and dj sets (house, funk, jazz, world music, techno…).
The green spaces around are turned into a temporary public garden open to all : inhabitants, and other active players in the local cultural and political life, artists, visitors… it is the call to come together, around values such as discussion, culture, art and ecology, in a festive and unusual environment. You will be surprised by its immense structure in wood, its dance floors, its giant sand pit, its guinguette…
Most activities are free and open to all : workshops, discussions and debates, afternoons in the garden, sport, games and tournaments, cinema, living art, music, etc.
Just a couple of steps from Paris, drop by as a tourist and let yourself be carried away in the holiday mood that surrounds this place.
The beach 6b provides entry and free activities from June to September.
