Every year in Auckland, there are Festivals celebrating a country, like the Lantern Chinese Festival or Auckland Diwali Festival – Indian.
With an ever-growing French community in New Zealand, more than 12,000 French people are living, loving, eating and working in Auckland. Le French Festival creator, Edouard, thought that there is definitely a place for a French Festival: it will gather the French community but also initiate New Zealand people to our culture or for the connoisseurs, reinforce their affection to this so famous and reputed ‘art de vivre’. And so Le French Festival is born in 2017 !
