WHERE: Dijon, France
WHEN: from 01 to 12 November 2023
With about 600 exhibitors and over 160,000 visitors a year, the International and Gastronomic Fair of Dijon has become one of the most important events in the whole country, as well as a reference point for the entire region.
Professionalism and organization are the basis of the success of the event, so much so as to obtain the recognition of “Foires di Frances” together with the most important fairs in all of France.
This year the Dijon Fair celebrates its edition number 100, testimony to the goodness and longevity of what is in effect the largest event in Burgundy. An event that highlights the territory and its products. It is also an opportunity to get a close look at the talent and work of the most emblematic producers of the Region.
Gastronomy is the heart of the event, and everything revolves around it. There will be competitions for professionals and amateurs. Wine tastings. Laboratories and workshops. Playful-didactic activities dedicated to children. And, of course, lots of shopping.
What better opportunity to discover this beautiful city and one of the most beautiful regions in all of France?

The International Fair takes place at the Parc des Expositions and Congrès located at 3 Bd de Champagne.
The 2 entrances are located on avenue des Grands Ducs d’Occident and Rue Léon Mauris
Given the short distance from the center (just over a kilometer) it is preferable to use public transport.
A few minutes away from the Congress Center are the Auditorium and Poincaré tram stops. Alternatively, you can arrive by bus 6 (Longvic – Toison d’Or) and get off at the Marne stop.
If you are by car, rather than park nearby (there is a car park with a capacity of about 2500 cars), opt for the suburbs. By purchasing the combined P + R ticket, which offers a single rate for parking and traveling by public transport.
During the 12 days of the International and Gastronomic Fair you can attend a varied and truly incredible program in numerous rooms of the Parc des Expositions.
The program relating to the Competitions is truly rich: there will truly be something for all tastes. From the one for the best ham with parsley, to the cake competition. There will also be sections dedicated to innovation and aspiring young people.
Diversity is at home at the International Village. In the specially dedicated room, it will be possible to discover the culture, traditions and culinary specialties of some guest countries. In the last edition, for example, it was Canada, Ireland, Italy and Ukraine.
The Dijon Fair is an event for the whole family. The program for children includes many recreational and educational activities and workshops.
“P’tits fermiers” is the event dedicated to the little ones.
Children will be able to see many animals up close: bulls, goats, horses, rams …
They will be able to get to know how the famous mustard or flour is produced.
