Temps des Fêtes 2019-20 –

‘Tis the Season to Parlez Français

Fall/Winter 2019-20

The Franco-American Centre serves as the focal point for celebrating French language, culture and heritage in NH.  Located on the historic campus of Saint Anselm College in Manchester, the Centre organizes language classes, movies, exhibits, trips and cultural events to promote the richness of the region’s French-speaking and French heritage communities.


Members and friends are invited to participate in the Centre’s Temps des Fêtes 2019-20

4 major events that celebrate the holidays as those of French heritage do best…


BEAUJOLAIS NOUVEAU GALA (November 23, 2019, Stonebridge Country Club, Goffstown, NH)

The third Thursday in November marks the release in France of the Beaujolais Nouveau wine.  The Franco-American Centre celebrates this occasion with a gala dinner experience.  (Black tie optional)


SOIRÉE DE NOËL (December 13, 2019, Stark Brewing Company, Manchester, NH)

The holidays are a time for good friends and family to celebrate the season! Modeled in the spirit of a house party, this gathering will be highlighted by open mic entertainment featuring Franco-Americans and their friends singing English and French holiday and contemporary classics.


MARDI GRAS (February 22, 2020, Jupiter Hall, Manchester, NH)

Tipping our hat to our Cajun cousins, the Franco-American Centre celebrates one of the most recognized French holidays.  Acadian music, good food and happy friends remind us of the Joie-de-Vivre for which Louisiana and Acadia are renowned.


FLEUR DÉLICES CUPCAKE CHALLENGE (March 2020, The Falls Event Center, Manchester, NH)

This year, we are launching the “Fleur Délices” Cupcake Challenge, an opportunity for the finest area bakeries and “cupcakeries” to feature their work in a fun-filled and delicious French-themed competition.  Attendees will sample the various treats and will select the cupcake that wins the soon-to-be-coveted Fleur Délices award.


These four events bring together different people with diverse interests beyond the French community, providing opportunities to convey your company’s message while supporting the Franco-American Centre’s mission.
