2018 French National Day – Sharing and Celebrating French Culture

Association of French people in Taiwan organize an annual gathering on July 14, the French National Day, to share French traditions with the local community.

La France en Fête

In order to celebrate the upcoming French National Day on July 14th, the members of the Association des Français a Taiwan (Association of French people in Taiwan), or AFT, organize an annual gathering to share French traditions with the local community.

The French National Day, also known as Bastille Day, celebrates French culture, diversity and patriotism. This year the event will take place on Saturday July 14th 2018 at the Ivy Palace (No. 368, Section 1, Dihua St, Datong District).

The AFT welcomes people of all nationalities to participate in experiencing French cuisine and wine, accompanied by fantastic live music. In addition to delicious gourmet good, the AFT invites all the major French companies in Taiwan to participate and sponsor the Bastille Day event, giving the invited guests an opportunity to explore new French products and services. The Bastille Day event also includes a chance to win amazing prizes, such as hotel stays at Novotel or French wine, in their raffle.

The French National Day Celebration promotes the essence of France and truly captures the French charm. This year the AFT will host its 10th Bastille Day celebration. Every year an increasing number of people come to enjoy live music, dance routines, magic shows, body painting, and a wide collection of other fun activities for all ages. The AFT is very lucky to also have a variety of food stands serving everything from authentic French wine and quiche, to poutine and French handmade sausage, providing guests with the best possible gourmet afternoon.

The AFT hopes to bring together the French community of Taiwan with people in Taiwan who take interest in French culture. Established in 1991, the AFT hosts a variety of events throughout the year, such as Happy Hour and La Fête de La Musique, to embrace and share French culture in Taiwan. We hope that all participants of La France en Fête will gain a better understanding of the beautiful essence of France.
