The ideal family outing! A fun and educational experience for the whole family!

The Paris International Agricultural Show is the ideal destination for an outing with the children. It's an essential event for satisfying the curiosity of children, who are very much targeted at this event.  You'll find numerous events at the stands of exhibitors at the Show.

Discover the animals

Thousands of animals of all types are there to be admired – as well as stroked. Click here to find out more about where exactly you'll find dogs and cats, as well as pigs and goats!

A place for learning

Every day, the show invites children to take part in more than a hundred activities and workshops exploring taste, food, the seasons, biodiversity, the environment, professions and many other themes.

Quizzes, paper chases, games requiring agility, tastings, workshops, performances and exhibitions: all sorts of activities to stimulate their senses and creativity.

And with the help of the online events schedule, you can decide in advance what you want to see with your children.

Educational farm

This area – especially created for children – takes a realistic and educational look at life on a farm! It's in hall 4. Created in partnership with the SNVEL (national union of independent veterinarians), it gives children the opportunity to find out more about the roles of each animal on a farm – production animals and working animals, as well as the social roles that they play. It features 2 cows and their calves, 2 horses, 1 donkey, 1 pig, several dogs, 3 sheep, 1 goat and a farmyard animal. A number of special events will also take place at the farm throughout the show, including a look at what a herding dog does, or how horses work with geese, identifying animals, vets examining production animals, etc.

Name bracelets and children's area

To help you visit the show with complete peace of mind, identification bracelets for children are distributed free of charge at the show’s entrances. 
In past years, these bracelets have allowed a number of parents to quickly locate children who have wandered away.

A children's area is also available in Hall 4 where they can enjoy a few minutes' play and relaxation.
