13th Traversée de Paris - Summer edition: A sweet back-to-school

15.07.2020: Because of the covid-19 pandemic, the summer edition of the Traversée de Paris usually taking place end of July early August has been postponed to the 30th of August. 600 vehicles (cars, light commercial vehicles, tractors, buses) and more than 10

Because of the covid-19 pandemic, the summer edition of the Traversée de Paris usually taking place end of July early August has been postponed to the 30th of August.



600 vehicles (cars, light commercial vehicles, tractors, buses) and more than 100 motorcycles and bikes




Vincennes en Anciennes, first French organization of multi-brand vintage cars has once again planned an exciting journey that will only be revealed on the day of the event. For this back-to-school 2020, the organization has bet on the simplicity of a shorter itinerary.



It will follow the Seine river and unite the charms of the French capital and the vehicles of more than 30 years. After months of containment, this is the occasion to see again iconic landmarks: Notre-Dame, the Eiffel Tower or the Arc de Triomphe.



The Traversée de Paris is very keen on promoting the rolling heritage, eclectic and rich, represented by vehicles from various countries and different brands. Among them, some have disappeared.




Whether you are a collector or not, how not to resist to such an exceptional and unique event?


Each vehicle retraces both personal history and the history of all vehicles. Better than a museum, this heritage is still
alive thanks to passionate people taking care of it and allowing it to cross the ages.



A festive picnic



What if this event was the occasion to have a picnic on the Meudon observatory terrace? From noon, the doors of the Meudon observatory terrace will open and vehicles will gather there. Each and everyone is welcome (without his car but with his picnic) in a festive atmosphere to admire this open air exhibition. You will also find there a village of partners, mostly professionals, to offer you additional services.



The UNIVEM settles a field hospital



The UNIVEM, is an organization dedicated to preserving historical military vehicles. On this day, UNIVEM will settle a
field hospital in Meudon.



Between 1939 and 1945, the US army realizes that a critical point of the conflict is the evacuation of the wounded people towards care structures.


In 1942, the US army organizes an health system in three layers:


- the portable surgical hospitals: 29 people among them 5 surgeons and 1 anesthetist for a capacity of 25 beds.
- the field hospitals.
- the general hospitals.


This organization is dedicated to bringing surgical cares right behind the front line with the portable surgical hspitals while field hospitals are located kilometers away from the front line.



The camp settled in Meudon will include: DUKW, Half Track, GMC, a Ward La France tow truck and some Jeep.



Vincennes en Anciennes & l’UNIVEM are committed to support the FRM*



Vincennes en Anciennes is committed to support charity works all year long. For this event, Vincennes en Anciennes has chosen the Fondation pour la Recherche Médicale (FRM), one of the largest nonprofit sources of funding for French medical research on all diseases.


For each subscription to the Traversée, 5€ will be donated to the FRM. The UNIVEM will offer journeys in military trucks in Meudon and 5€ will also be donated to the FRM.



Immersion in the 30s, the journey in a platform bus



For each Traversée de Paris, platform buses from the 30s are back in the streets of Paris (10€ per person, limited number of seats). The barrier measures will be applied for everyone to fully enjoy this unique event.




Pratical info

Every year, it supports more than 400 new research projects, carried out by public research organizations and higher educational institutions (INSERM, CNRS, INRA, CEA, universities, grandes écoles, health institutions, etc.). Maintaining its independence, the FRM is able to act thanks to the generosity of its donors, bequests and partners. The Fondation pour la Recherche Médicale is recognized as a charitable organization and certified by the group Don en Confiance.
