Alliance Française de Chicago

Un Air de Provence | We Have A New Date: November 13, 2020

Due to restrictions on public gatherings to limit the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Alliance Française de Chicago has rescheduled the 2020 Gala for November 13, 2020. We made this difficult decision in support of the State of Illinois and the City of Chicago’s efforts to encourage social distancing. We appreciate your understanding and continued commitment to the Alliance, and look forward to gathering with our generous supporters very soon.

The Alliance Française de Chicago is over 120 years old and is part of an international network of over 1,100 Alliances and affiliated cultural centers worldwide. It is the second oldest Alliance Française in the US and second largest after the Alliance Française in New York City.

Our mission is to be Chicago’s center of French language and French speaking cultures—to promote exchange, understanding, and friendship between Americans and French speaking people—from Europe, Canada, Cajun country, Africa, the Caribbean and the Middle East—a world of over 220 million French speakers.
