any one gone to Salon du Chocolat?

I love chocolate & I just found out that Salon du Chocolat will be going on when I arrive in Paris, beg of Nov!! Has anyone ever gone? Will it be doable & enjoyable for a non French speaking person? I'd love to watch the fashion show & sample & buy chocolate there. Any hints would be appreciated. Thanks!!

Yes, I know about it. I have been on the website. I want to know who has been there. I got a response from the blogger that I emailed. She was the one who wrote about it in the first place. She said it would be fun. The beg of the event might be better, but I have no choice but to go the last day. (sun). She said Sunday would be very crowded. So I think I am going to go. Anyone want to add info to this?

I went a few years ago. It was fin and many of the booths come from across the globe, so some of the folk barely speak French, but are fluent in English. I think you'll love it.

Like phread, it's been a while.

I just remember the crowds and wondering why I had to pay to get in..

No major regrets but won't be running back this year.

Give it a try, why not?

Sorry this is late, but to anyone else interested. I went in 2003 and I still think about. It was so awesome. I speak French pretty well, but from what I remember there were many non-French speakers as well. Just get cash before you go in. When I went there were no ATMs inside and plenty of cash only purchases I wanted to make :)

"wondering why I had to pay to get in..". Yes, it always puzzles me that you have to pay at these things so that you can spend your money. I suppose it keeps the riff-raff away :)
