09 - 28 Mar 2019 - Festival de la Francophonie 2019

The opening of the Festival de la Francophonie this year will take place Saturday, 9th March, at Pro Arte Alphen Park High School (146 Roeline St, Alphen Park, Pretoria, 0081) from 11h00-17h00.

The annual Francophonie Festival in Pretoria, launched in 2010, is a platform available to Embassies, Institutions, Francophone and Francophiles in Pretoria for the promotion of French cultural and linguistic diversity.

The festival is a great way to learn about other cultures and explore the creative artistry of the many countries that speak French. Since 2010, more than 23 countries have collaborated each year to present an array of experiences all rooted in the Francophone cultures – from Africa to the Americas to Asia to the Middle East. This year, participating countries include Belgium, Benin, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroun, Canada, Comoros, Congo Brazzaville, Cote d’Ivoire, Egypt, Mali, France, Gabon, Guinea, Lebanon, Madagascar, Niger, RDC, Seychelles, Senegal, Switzerland, and Tunisia.

Each year about a thousand visitors, of all ages and all backgrounds, join us the for this event. Come and participate, on the opening day Saturday, March 9, 2019 and/or during an evening dedicated to a francophone country.

The cultural evenings that follow over the next two weeks to three weeks, will offer a variety of experiences; including concerts, films and theatre. One day dedicated to a different country. Every evening brings something special, presenting the breadth and dynamism of the Francophone community.
