Each spring, over 500,000 visitors flock to Paris’s Porte de Versailles convention center to enjoy the Foire de Paris—that is, the Paris Home Show.  And yet, there is so much more to this gathering than just items for the home.  2,500 exhibitors arrive to show their goods, which include everything from furniture to tools to organic food to music to cars to gadgets to toys to housewares.  The Foire de Paris, which has been held annually since 1904, is the perfect place to see what’s new in any number of fields.

A visit to the Foire de Paris is a treat for the entire family. This year’s show slogan is “Y’a d’la joie!”  Roughly translated, it means “There is joy!” And truly, the show is all about making your world a pleasanter place to live in.  The fair is broken into three exhibitions: Home and Environment, Well-Being and Leisure, and World of Cultures.  Whether you are looking to organize or beautify your home, improve your health and recreation, or simply enjoy food, arts, clothing, and culture from around the world, the Foire de Paris offers you more options than you can imagine.
