Détails de l'événement

On October 7, the day of Dionysus, Moulin Jaune suggests you get drunk.  “But on what? On wine*, on poetry, or on virtue; you choose. But get drunk.

And if, from time to time—on the steps of a palace, in the green grass of a ditch, in the doleful silence of your bedroom—you awaken to find your drunkenness has dissipated or disappeared, ask the wind, the waves, the stars, the birds, the clocks; ask all that flees, or wails, or rolls; ask all that sings or speaks; ask what time it is, and the wind, the waves, the stars, the birds, the clocks will answer you: “It is time to get drunk! So as not to be Time’s martyred slaves, get drunk, get drunk, and never rest! On wine*, on poetry, or on virtue; you choose.” (Charles Baudelaire)

Bring your whole family along with picnic baskets or swing into our bar.

Dress-code: violet, bordeaux and autumn colours

*drink wine in moderation

How to get here



(Samedi) 11:00 - 18:30


The garden will stay open even if it rains. Bring your umbrellas or raincoats and breathe in the post-rain garden aroma. That’s exactly how gardens are enjoyed in Asia!

Children will be responsible for their parents and vice versa. Most of art objects at Moulin Jaune are rather fragile, so even though we encourage you to release your inner child, we also hope that you treat our garden with care and attention.

We always recommend to dress up according to the theme of the event if you really want to creatively plunge into becoming part of the atmosphere. For October 7-8 it’s violet, burgundy and autumn colours.

We film and photograph all our events, so chances are our cameras might catch you. These images might later be used for promotional materials of any kind or be placed on our website or social media. Should you have any objections against this, please inform us first thing at the entrance.

Dogs can bring their owners, on a leash, only if wearing a theme-inspired accessory. We prefer, however, that dogs who find pleasure in duck-hunting or child-smooching stay home. We also trust that you bring a small waste-bag to clean after your four legged friend.

Seating. There are chairs, benches, straw bales, etc.  for picnics or breaks during the visit.

In case the event gets cancelled due to sanitary, geopolitical or any other unpredictable reasons, you can transfer your ticket to a later event or get a full refund if such transfer is impossible.

You can also offer tickets for any or all of Moulin Jaune escapades as a gift!

This weekend is part of the Jardins ouverts en Ile-de-France and the Incroyables Jardins de Seine et Marne.

An event accessible with the Culture Pass.
