The Organization

You all may have noticed that I have been a tad bit obsessed with France since returning from Paris!  So, after learning of TFAA I immediately hit google to learn more about the group. Here is what I found out. The former Counsel General of France founded this organization in 2005.  The group has support from local corporations and the Consulate of France in Houston.

Their mission statement really explains the goals of TFAA better than I could.

The Texan French Alliance for the Arts serves to program, promote and facilitate educational programs as well as artistic and cultural exchanges involving Texas and France. Its creative programs and varied partnerships aim to improve the quality of life in our cities and local communities using art, along with other disciplines, as a catalyst to create positive change.

So I’m clearly team French culture so I am all about this.  I also checked out their programs including From a Space to a Place which aims to help underprivileged children and Open the Door  which is responsible for placing art installations around town at parks.  There were many other programs but these two stood out to me.

The Macaron Festival is slated for Sunday April 23rd from 4pm-7pm at the Houston Design Center.  Attendees will receive a “Macaron Passport” and maneuver through various stations featuring macarons from local favorites like Flo Paris.  There will also be great champagne, crafts, performers and dancing!  Guests are asked to dress in “Provence summer chic.”  I imagine that will probably make for some great pictures.

Tickets are already on sale!  Presale tickets are $60 and will be $75 at the door.  Also, I know some of you are fancy and enjoy a VIP experience, so just note that it is available for $100 (presale) and $125 (at the door). VIP guests will receive complimentary valet parking, access to a VIP lounge and additional showrooms.  Sounds like a win to me!

Tickets for this event can be purchased by calling 713-822-2060 or emailing info@texanfrenchalliance.org.
