2012 Franco Fête in Minneapolis


Franco-Fête Minneapolis 2012
September 28 & 29
Minneapolis, Minnesota
A Multicultural, Multicontinental, Bilingual Event

Franco-Fete will include all the elements of a fine program: family, food, fun…along with academics, history, music…

This will be the first such Fete in Minneapolis-St. Paul, but is not a first ever venture.

Leader Dr. Virgil Benoit, French-Canadian (Franco-American), professor of French at the University of North Dakota and a lifelong part of the Red Lake Falls MN community, has been putting together similar festivals for over 35 years in various places in Minnesota and North Dakota. Dr. Benoit is a professor of diverse talents and great skill, as well as having great passion for the culture and language of his birth.

This years conference will be the largest and most ambitious thus far. Most likely it will be continued in subsequent years.
