Whether you’re from another country or a just down the road, we invite you to experience PARIS. No matter the season, you’ll enjoy getting off the beaten path in rural, Northwest Tennessee, home of friendly folks with a slower pace, scrumptious food, memorable festivals, intriguing history, and breathtaking natural areas.
World’s Biggest Fish Fry – the name says it all! Come for a day or a week to experience non-stop, family fun and fabulous food. We fry up and serve 12,000 plates of mouthwatering catfish with all the trimmings. Join us the last full week of April each year for this family friendly festival.
Experience Fish Fry like a local with kid-approved favorites including our Grand Parade, Junior Fishing Rodeo, Bed Races, Small Fry Parade, Chalk Crawl and the ever-popular Catfish Races. Enter this outlandish event for your best selfie ever. And yes, we consider it good luck to kiss our catfish!
If you’re seeking that magical combination of music, water and good times with great friends, look no further than our Tennessee River Jam, the last weekend in June. It’s not just a concert, it’s four days of live performances, with unique backdrops, featuring everything from classic country to Americana, R&B to bluegrass.
The venues are as varied as the musical genres and include family-friendly eateries, hopping bars, classic marinas, local performing arts center, and fabulous amphitheater. Set against the shimmering backdrop of Kentucky Lake at Paris Landing State Park, the signature event is a country song in the making. Whether you experience it from the water or from the riverbank, this June evening under the stars with your country favorites is unforgettable.
When Christmas rolls around, even Santa heads to Paris! The big man is the main attraction on weekends and for our exciting Holly Jolly Electric Christmas Parade. With Santa, a marching band, thousands of twinkling lights and delightful, welcoming boutiques, Downtown Paris is like a Hallmark Christmas movie… and we’ve got a part for you.
