Bastille Day Festivities

Bastille Day

This year, we participated in the Grand Celebration sponsored by the Consulate General of France in Louisiana and the French-American Chamber of Commerce-Gulf Coast Chapter as well as L’Union Française among others. The Consul General, Grégor Trumel is being re-assigned and this was somewhat of a farewell party. We were joined by many at the New Orleans Museum of Art for a wonderful Bastille Day party on Friday, July 14. There was music, food, and drink.

Members and Friends of L’Union Française

Met at NOMA to enjoy the festivities.

This year we joined the citywide celebration in anticipation of New Orleans’s tricentennial next year.

  Voted by Reuters as the third best Bastille Day celebration in the world – how could we miss it! Hope you were there to join us!!!!!

Fête de Noël

2016 Fête de Noël

The annual Fête de Noël was held on Saturday, December 10th and was attended by about 60 members of L’Union Française and their guests as they celebrated the beginning of the Christmas holidays.
The house was festively decorated for the occasion.  President Hilda Sapera and First Vice-President Danny Lewis and several of our board members were present to welcome guests and wish everyone a Joyeux Noël. Vice Consul Olivia Lamy and husband Thomas joined in the festivities. There was a delicious array of food offerings along with a well stocked bar. It was a fine way to anticipate the arrival of Père Noël.
