Foire de Paris; more than 100 years of history

The first Foire de Paris took place in 1904. The event was originally created to follow the famous Exposition Universelle de Paris of 1900, which was a phenomenal success. Since that time, the goal of the Foire de Paris has been to share with the general public the latest innovations in home décor, lifestyle, wellness, fashions, hobbies and more, as well as shine a spotlight on cultures from around the world and provide a showcase for the best in wine and food products. Today it is regarded as the largest general-purpose trade fair in Europe.


Foire de Paris; a continually evolving success

The Foire de Paris is a major attraction, drawing thousands of visitors, including many from outside France, to browse the stands of the exhibitors, participate in the various activities on offer, and find out all about the latest trends. To help you find the things that interest you most, the fair is divided into specific sectors. These are home and lifestyle; wine and gastronomy; arts, crafts and culture of the world; wellness, fashion and accessories; and leisure and everyday life. You can find a wealth of ideas to enrich your life and those of your loved ones. In addition to the exhibitors, the Foire de Paris offers various activities and entertainment, including workshops, shows, and competitions to reward innovation and invention. Visit the Foire de Paris with your family and enjoy an experience rich in discoveries and fun.
