The introduction of the Beaujolais Nouveau has become a tradition in France and all over the world- a festival of live music, French Food, and ‘new on the market’ wine, for all to relish. Here, in New Orleans, it has become the French American Chamber of Commerce’s main entertainment event, which benefits our year round activities- namely, supporting its lifelong mission to promote French investment in Louisiana and increase trade between Louisiana and France.
Sample wines from the famous Beaujolais region of France along with tempting treats from the kitchens of some of New Orleans most talented chefs. Enjoy live music. Bid on a host of great items in our auction. Tickets include food, wine and entertainment for just $60. Friends of Uptown Messenger receive a 10% discount. Visit http://2011beaujolaisfestival.eventbrite.com/ to purchase ‘Friends of the Chamber’ tickets or for more information.
This year an After Party will follow the main festival. This late-night soirée is specially designed for young professionals (and the young-at-heart), and will feature popular French hits by DJ Otto. Admission is $10.
