There are two main events you can sponsor during the year:

Beaujolais Nouveau Celebration

Each year, the French American Chamber of Commerce, Gulf Coast Chapter, organizes its arrival of the Beaujolais Nouveau in New Orleans. Traditionally, the young Beaujolais Nouveau wine is released from France and transported to every corner of the globe at midnight on the third Thursday of November to spark a worldwide celebration of good wine, and good food.

French Summer Wine Festival

Every summer the FACC-GC invites all Gulf Coast residents to begin the hot season with a fresh French Touch! Refresh your palate with the crisp flavors of French summer wines and an assortment of signature dishes prepared by New Orleans' most talented chefs while taking the time to discuss “hot business topics” with regional business leaders.

Fête des Fromages

In 2018 the FACC-GC is excited to present the Fête des Fromages, a celebration of more than 100 artisan cheeses from all over the world. Stroll the grounds of the New Orleans Jazz Museum at the U.S. Mint while listening to great music, sampling cheeses, tasting specialty foods and sipping on wine, cider and beer. Watch a cheese wheel cracking competition, learn about the history of cheese with Chef Alex Miles, or become a VIP to participate in a seminar with world-renowned cheese experts Liz Thorpe or Michele Buster. Round off your festival experience with a visit to Le Marché, a fabulous store brimming with plenty of cheese-related items to take home.
