From Saturday, February 23 2019 to Sunday, March 3 2019
If you can't come to the countryside, then the countryside will come to you... This could be the official slogan to accompany this particular show, one of the biggest events of the year in France. Every year, the Agricultural Show gives over 600,000 city-dwellers the chance to discover the countryside in the heart of Paris. For this year's edition, a range of agricultural practises will be showcased: market gardening, animal rearing, hunting and fishing, traditional farming and organic agriculture.
Visitors will be able to admire fine specimens of pure bred farm animals, all of which have been hand-picked specially for the show.
Over 1000 exhibitors will be attending, and you can expect to see over 3500 animals taking part in various competitions. There will also be an award for the best farm produce.
The Agricultural Show also hosts two renowned professional agricultural competitions. The General Agricultural Competition is an opportunity for farmers to submit their finest animals, while the General Agricultural Products Competition rewards the best French food products.
Children will enjoy the Agricultural Show too with fun and educational spaces specially dedicated to them. Embark on a family trip to the countryside... in Paris!
