New Orleans, unique due to the preservation of its French origins, has always had a close relationship with the Alliance Française. Founded 34 years ago, the Alliance Française de la Nouvelle-Orléans promotes knowledge and appreciation of both the French language and Francophone cultures, while playing an important role in enhancing the lifestyle of our fascinating city.
We invite you to join us at our annual gala on March 3, 2018, at The New Orleans Jazz Market, where we will raise a glass in honor of our Gala Honorée, Nell Nolan. This year’s theme, Bar Clandestin, will transport you back in time, to a hidden, dimly lit nightclub where the drinks are cold but the music’s hot. For entry, ring bell and supply the secret password, “Bonsoir,” … no password, no party! Then, be swept away into the sultry night where you’ll be dazzled by Raphaël Bas and his band Harmonouche while you feast on an array of French delectables by Olive Blue Catering. Your generous support will enable us to continue our mission.
