Francophonie Festival 2020

Mar 7, 2020 @ 11:00 am 5:00 pm

The annual Francophonie Festival, 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 25 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.

Each year more than two thousand visitors, of all ages and all backgrounds, join us in celebrating the Francophonie. Come and participate at Crawford Schools Pretoria, on the opening day Saturday, March 7 2020 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.
