Calendar of Paris Events

October 21-30 A bit like a smaller, cozier version of the Foire de Paris, the Foire d'Automne at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles is a trade show of food and wine, home decor, beauty and fashion, and all French arts de vivre. Open 10am-7pm, entry €9. 

October 27-29
The last big electronic music festival of the year, the Pitchfork Festival, takes place over three days at the Grande Halle de la Villette (Parc de la Villette, 19th). One-day passes €54,  three-day passes €120.

October 28 - November 1
Stuff yourself with all kinds of chocolately goodies at the annual Salon du Chocolat, at the Paris-Expo - Porte de Versailles (metro line 12), 10am-7pm. Entrance €14. You can get advance tickets online or ask at your favorite chocolate shop if they have any extra invitations. Avoid the weekend unless you're a masochist! Here are some Salon du Chocolat tips from a previous article by Secrets of Paris intern Tara Oakes.

Looking for a convenient and inexpensive hotel at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport? Try the Hotel Ibis CDG Aéroport-Gares, located at terminal 3 right next to the RER station into Paris. Free airport shuttles go between the terminals, or you can catch the hotel’s own shuttle. Rooms (there are 556 of them) are compact, but clean and have all the modern conveniences like telephone with voice mail, WiFi internet access and satellite TV. Prices €79-€110 per night. Warning: While the Paris Metro runs until 1am, the RER B between the airport and Paris stops at midnight (then you’re stuck waiting for the hourly night bus or taking a taxi for about €50).
