Special Events

Alliance Française du Manitoba is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to teaching and promoting French and its diverse culture. It organizes annual signature events in Winnipeg throughout the year, which have great appeal to local media and sponsors.

With the help of our various partners, we organize many one-off special events. We also host a number of recurring special events: Alliance Française French Film Festival; the annual Bastille Day celebration, Blues Blanc Rouge; or our on-ice dance party, Discothèque On Ice.
