Since 2017 The French American Academy has been promoting a French Week in Jersey City during the week preceding Bastille Day.
In 2020, due to social distancing and many limitations put in place for good reasons we are not doing French Week in person. Instead The French American Academy is partnering with the French Consulate to promote #United for Bastille Day 2020.
It is a week of French-style celebration to support together the French and Francophile community in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Bermuda.
In 2021 we will resume French Week as an opportunity to taste French food, wine, and drinks in several places, throughout Downtown Jersey City.
In 2021, the restaurants and cafes partners of French Week will host French Happy Hours during which a variety of food samples, cocktails and drinks will be served. Click below for the program.
