Every March since 2008 the French Consulate in Houston has coordinated a Francophonie festival–a celebration of all things French. The French Cultures Festival (FCF) brings people together across Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.
The FCF collaborates with many institutional and cultural partners, including diplomatic representations from Switzerland, Canada and Belgium, as well as museums, universities, international schools and local businesses and associations. Featuring events such as lectures, films, shows, concerts, encounters with artists, scientific conferences, talks, degustations, and parties, the 2012 FCF successfully introduced over 60 different cultural events in the main cities of the three states.
Condensed down to 17 days, the 2013 French Cultures Festival runs from March 8th-25th and is launching with a concert at Discovery Green Park in downtown Houston on March 8th. The concert will feature both French and local musicians, and is free to the public. French food and wine as well as other beverages will be available for purchase.
