The Beaujolais Nouveau celebration is a French cultural “Fete” that will take place in accordance with popular French annual tradition and custom for uncorking the Beaujolais Nouveau wine. We will serve light fare from leading DC restaurants, accompanied by French breads, cheeses, pâtés and pastries. Guests will be treated to free-flowing Beaujolais Nouveau wine. Don’t miss this fun-filled and free-flowing annual tradition at the Embassy of France! We encourage you to purchase tickets soon, as this event sells out quickly every year.

The event is organized as a festival of wine. As such there are many facets to the evening and the evening is planned so that you can mingle and walk inside the embassy to discover and celebrate French culture and cuisine. Kindly note that the event is not organized as a seated function or dinner event but rather as a cocktail reception with light fare.

Due to security considerations at the embassy, we are unable to accept walk-ins. You must reserve a ticket in advance to attend this event. Absolutely no door sales. All guests must be strictly 21 and over.
