The Salon du Chocolat 2019 is already celebrating its 25th anniversary. From 30 October to 3 November, head for the Parc des Expos de Versailles exhibition centre to discover the mouthwatering magic of cocoa. Workshops, tasting sessions, exhibitions of the finest Yule logs and a fashion parade featuring chocolate dresses are all guaranteed to delight young and old alike. The show’s patron this year will be the pastry chef Philippe Conticini.

Another place and another anniversary… The legendary Moulin Rouge will be celebrating its 130th anniversary on 6 October with a free sound and light show projected onto its facade. And the icing on the cake for this event will be the 60 artists from the Moulin Rouge who’ll be treating everyone in attendance to a performance of the famous French Cancan. A timeless experience! You’ll need to be outside this well-known Parisian monument at 8 PM sharp.

Le Grand Palais is hosting a major retrospective dedicated to Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec from 9 October onwards. Jointly produced with the Musée d'Orsay, the Musée de l'Orangerie and La Réunion des Musées Nationaux with the support of the municipality of Albi and the Musée Toulouse-Lautrec, this exhibition will be exploring the painter’s unique talent for portraying Parisian nightlife in the 19th century with more than 200 of his works and items of correspondence with other artists such as Manet, Degas, Forain or Ingres. A must-see event!
Information and reservations: www.grandpalais.fr

To celebrate the Eiffel Tower’s 130th anniversary, a free, interactive exhibition will be running throughout the whole of October in front of this famous Parisian monument until late November. The public will have the opportunity to discover the thrilling saga behind the construction of this monument designed by Gustave Eiffel. To maximise the fun and educational aspects of the event, a number of videos will be played on screens placed on the ground to give visitors the impression that they are walking high in the air, enabling them to experience what it would have felt like for workers on this incredible construction project! The more creative among you can even step to the shoes of the painters of the Eiffel Tower thanks to the “virtual graffiti” technique, with sound effects designed to recreate the original atmosphere of the 1889 Universal Exhibition. An exciting immersive experience.

For its part, from 16 October, the Musée de l'Orangerie will be devoting an exhibition to the collector Félix Fénéon, entitled Félix Fénéon. The modern times, from Seurat to Matisse. This retrospective devoted to the journalist and art collector who made it possible for primitive art to stand out on the artistic scene of the 19th and 20th centuries, will be examining the anarchistic side of the artist and his comrades including Seurat, Signac, Cross and Luce. An original and fascinating approach. Further information: www.musee-orangerie.fr
