Keynote Speaker Conferences

The topics of these stimulating lectures include French and Francophone culture, literature, and cinema. We typically offer one lecture per month during the school year. 

Holiday Celebrations

We gather to celebrate Bastille Day (a French national holiday, or Fête Nationale, on or around July 14th each year. Our members and visitors enjoy plenty of French food, conversation, and fun. Our annual Christmas party is a beloved tradition, with traditional food that members bring to celebrate the end of the year.

Wine Tastings

We organize wine tastings, which are always well attended. Please consider joining us! Contact infoafbirmingham@gmail.com for more information. 

French Conversation Tables

We meet at different restaurants around town to speak French with each other. While the Table is not associated with the Alliance, it is attended by a lot of our members. All levels of French speakers are welcome! Usually multiple levels are in attendance; some are intermediate speakers, some are native speakers, and some are beginners who just wish to listen and learn. To participate: Please contact infoafbirmingham@gmail.com for more information.
