Place des Fêtes (French pronunciation: ​[plas de fɛt]) is a station of the Paris Métro, serving lines 7bis (eastbound only) and 11 in the 19th arrondissement and the Belleville district. It is one of the deepest stations in the metro, at 22.45 meters below the surface. (Abbesses is the deepest, at 36 meters.)

The station was opened on 18 January 1911 as part of a branch of line 7 from Louis Blanc to Pré Saint-Gervais. On 3 December 1967 this branch was separated from line 7, becoming line 7bis. The line 11 platforms opened with the first section of the line from Châtelet to Porte des Lilas on 28 April 1935. Along with Maison Blanche, a prototype air raid shelter was added to the station in 1935 to protect it from chemical attacks and was fitted with airtight doors to allow the people to take refuge inside in the event of an attack. They were chosen due to their proximity to heavily populated, working-class districts.[1]
