FÊTE PARADISO

Fête Paradiso is the world’s first traveling festival of vintage carnival rides and carousels, wich will make its American debut on Governors Island in New York City. The rare, museum-quality collection includes a diverse array of attractions from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, such as carousels, flying swings and a pipe organ.

 

The extraordinary festival of artisan-crafted, vintage carousels and carnival rides – like a French film miraculously come to life – is the first of its kind to appear in the United States. Among the attractions, which come from the collections of Francis Staub and Regis Masclet, is a bicycle carousel from the late 19th century – one of only two in the world that were created in Paris to encourage the use of what was then the new mode of transportation – the bicycle. (The only other bicycle carousel can be seen in the feature filmMidnight in Paris.) Fête Paradiso will also include an early 20th century Music-Hall Ball Guzzler, a carnival game that features life-size caricatures of Josephine Baker, Charlie Chaplin and other celebrities of the time.
