LA Fête du Beaujolais Nouveau


After a three year break, the Alliance Française is delighted to announce that it will resume hosting the Beaujolais Nouveau Festival. Together with the French Australian Chamber of Commerce (FACCI) we’re celebrating the tradition of the arrival of the ‘New Beaujolais’ – or the release of the first wine of the harvest – traditionally held every 3rd Thursday in November.

On the program will be wine and cheese degustation, Beaujolais cultural activities, musical performances, and prizes to be won. Make sure you don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity to enjoy la  joie de vivre !
