This Sunday, March 19, celebrate all things Francophone at Seattle’s French Fest at Seattle Center Armory. From

Now in its fifth year, the French Fest at Seattle Center is a part of the Seattle Center’s FESTÁL cultural event series and attracts 5,000 visitors. This year, Seattle Center FESTÁL is celebrating its twentieth anniversary. French Fest and FESTÁL will be partnering to make this year’s event a grand celebration of two significant anniversaries!

French Fest draws its inspiration from the worldwide “Day of Francophonie,” organised 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.
