Fête Française, an annual event organized by Ecole Bilingue de la Nouvelle-Orléans, carries the distinction of being the only French Festival in New Orleans. It is a unique opportunity to celebrate the French heritage of the city and showcase all things French: language, cuisine, art and music. The 13th Annual Fête Française theme is “Bleu, Blanc, Rouge.”
This fun-filled event celebrates all things uniquely French and helps to keep the Francophone heritage alive and well in New Orleans and Louisiana through a variety of food, entertainment, children’s activities and cultural demonstrations.
