Following official information received yesterday pertaining to the Plan Vigipirate, applicable to all governmental and non-governmental institutions with a link to France, the  Alliance Francaise of Washington DC reserves the right to ask first-time visitors for their government-issue ID when they enter the building.

We thank you for your cooperation and understanding. This procedure is temporary but will remain in place until further notice.

France Forever Series

We’ll always have Paris!” Humphrey Bogart famously said to Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca. As you will no doubt agree that France will be France Forever, our first series mixes history, romanticism and a splash of nostalgia, all of which have attracted Americans to France ever since Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson walked the streets of Paris and Versailles. Discuss and debate the intricacies of French books, show off your wit and humor, and interact with the francophones and Francophiles of DC in our genuine French salon.
