The Legendary Moulin Rouge of Paris is Coming to New York City

The celebration is expected to have thousands of visitors over the course of the weekend, attendees will enjoy free entrance to walk the festival grounds and see abridged Moulin Rouge performances and fashion shows.

During their short time in NYC, the Moulin Rouge dancers will be making appearances at New York City’s most well-known landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, The Empire State Building and Times Square. Over the years, the Moulin Rouge has become the most famous cabaret in the world, internationally known for its French Cancan, immortalized by Toulouse-Lautrec in 1891 with his first advertising poster, as well as for its sumptuous grand stage shows: elaborate costumes boasting feathers, Swarovski crystals and sequins, fantastical settings, and original music.

“This is a widely anticipated event. The Moulin Rouge will greet the city that never sleeps for the first time in over 100 years,” says Moulin Rouge CEO, Jean-Jacques Clerico. “We are absolutely thrilled to participate in BEST OF FRANCE it is truly an honor to be part of something that encourages such strong global ties and cultural values. What better way to bring our legendary show to a legendary city than with our lavish costumes, majestic dances, and sensational French energy.”
