2021 French Cultures Festival

Spoken by 300 million people on the five continents and by 2.1 million people in the United States, French language is the second most widely learned language in the world. Since 1970, French language has been celebrated on March 20, which marks the birth of the Intergovernmental Organization of French-speaking nations (Organisation internationale de la francophonie).

Each year in March, the Cultural Service of the French Embassy in Houston coordinates the French Cultures Festival (FCF) in Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. A celebration of the diversity of "francophonie", it brings together people who not only speak French, but also feel, in one way or another, connected to France and the Francophone community.

One of the major objectives of the French Cultures Festival is to create awareness of the diversity of French language and cultures and to stimulate exchanges with the public.

The FCF gathers many institutional partners from museums, universities, schools, diplomatic representations, and many other organizations. Every year, over 40 cultural and educational events are showcased during the Festival in the three states covered by the Cultural Service.
