COMING TO LOWELL FROM SUNDAY, JUNE 23 thru SUNDAY, JUNE 30 -
If you are of French decent, or simply enjoy the French language, foods, music & customs, then this is the place to go. An entire week of fun activities from start to finish. Check out the schedule which I've posted below. Don't think you can make all the events, that's okay, mark your calendar, or make yourself a reminder in your cell phone so you don't miss the ones that peak your interest the most. All events are "FREE" except where otherwise noted.
If you are able to come to our great city for any of these events, please make sure you sign our Guest Book. We shall do our best to keep you informed of any other Franco-American events being held throughout the year in the 6 New England states and possibly some events which are held in Canada.
The Franco-American Day Committee is a small non-profit organization located in Lowell, MA. We will never contact you without expression permission. Any information you supply will NEVER be sold or given out without your consent. If you do attend any of the events, please look me up and let me know where you are from, and how you found out about our events.
Hope to see many of you there!
