Now in its sixth year, the French Fest at Seattle Center is a part of the Seattle Center’s FESTÁL cultural event series and attracts 5,000 visitors.
The event is free and open to the public (no admittance tickets are required). French Fest draws its inspiration from the worldwide « Day of Francophonie, » organized in over 100 countries each March to celebrate the diversity of Francophone cultures and traditions around the world.
During the Seattle event, festival-goers of all ages have an opportunity to enjoy many activities – all with a « French » twist: live music, theater and dance performances, French cuisine, book sales, informative seminars and demonstrations, « best baguette » contest, games and more.
The event is organized by the nonprofit organization, France Education Northwest, with the support of Seattle Center FESTÁL, the French-American Chamber of Commerce of the Pacific Northwest, the Consular Agency of France in Seattle, Coca-Cola
