Romania at Kickoff - Soirée Commune - Festivale de la Francophonie, February 28, @ Alliance Francais


 300 million people, 35 countries, 5 continents: Join the fun and come around the world with us in March!

Celebrate la francophonie all month-long with our partners from Bénin, Belgium, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Canada, China, France, Haiti, Louisiana, Québec, Romania, Switzerland and Togo…

Leap into the Kick Off early this year on Friday February 28th and join us and our country partners for this fun-filled evening.

Start off by getting your passport: then meet the chefs and sample the homemade cuisine tout-monde, from cochonnaille to raclette; chill out at our outdoor sugar shack, rain or snow, then shake it up on the dance floor with world rhythm music from coupé-décalé to belly dancing or French EDM. No worries, we'll show you how!

Better safe than sorry! This event always sells out quickly... so register early.

Check our website for much more FrancoFun in March and remember: admission is free to most of our programs.
