Annual Fundraisers

Fête Française – March 21, 2020

Fête Française is a free outdoor festival held at our uptown campus, off Magazine Street each Spring. Our Fête carries the distinction of being the only true French festival in New Orleans. In addition to being our largest fundraiser, 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, music, art, entertainment, children’s activities and cultural demonstrations.
