Alliance Française DuPage members come from all over the Western suburbs of Chicago and beyond. Since March 2020, we have migrated all our programming online (using Zoom) due to the Coronavirus.
Take a moment to look through our website at our wide variety of AF DuPage events and activities: French conversation groups, Language Workshop, Book Club, Ciné Club, and Special Events.
We would be delighted to see you online! We’re a vibrant, diverse group and we’re eager to welcome new members. Whether you are a fluent French speaker or just enjoy French culture, you are sure to find an event that engages your desire for French language and cultural programming.
In normal times, we move our feast of activities throughout DuPage County and the Fox River Valley region, from Naperville to Wheaton to Downers Grove to Geneva and Saint Charles. After the pandemic, we hope to be able to join together again with fellow AF DuPage members at our annual signature events – Bastille Day Pique-Nique, Soirée Crêpes, Fête de Noël, and wine tastings. Until then, we have reimagined many of these activities into online formats.
For some events and activities, the Alliance Française of DuPage County requires an additional event fee which can be paid by check or PayPal. Since expenses are often paid or guaranteed before an event, we are not able to assure a refund if a cancellation occurs after a payment has been received.
If a cancellation occurs prior to the event date, the event fee may be refunded at the discretion of the board if a replacement can be found.
The Alliance Française de DuPage is run entirely by volunteers and financed almost entirely by membership dues. You will find members from all walks of life and with all levels of French, from beginners to native speakers, and make good friends as you attend our events.
So, n'attendez plus! Sign up below to be on our mailing list and come join us soon at an upcoming event.
