Morning and afternoon, the San Isidro Meadow fills with visitors who celebrate along with the ‘chulapos’ and ‘chulapas’ dressed in traditional costume and who go there to enjoy a day outdoors where concerts, gastronomy and the festive atmosphere flood every corner of the city.

French Open
May 20 – Jun 9 all-day

The French Open, also called Roland-Garros, is a major tennis tournament held over two weeks between late May and early June at the Stade Roland-Garros in Paris, France.

The venue is named after the French aviator Roland Garros. It is the premier clay court tennis championship event in the world and the second of four annual Grand Slam tournaments, the other three being the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. The French Open is currently the only Grand Slam event held on clay, and it is the zenith of the spring clay court season. Because of the seven rounds needed for a championship, the slow-playing surface and the best-of-five-set men’s singles matches (without a tiebreak in the final set), the event is widely considered to be the most physically demanding tennis tournament in the world.
