Passport to France is the event of the season for fine French cuisine, wines and spirits,
French culture and entertainment!
The event began 26 years ago when FACC-Chicago launched the city’s original, largest
and most festive soirée in honor of the Beaujolais Nouveau’s official uncorking. Since then,
the event has grown into a true celebration of everything French, where guests can taste
wines and spirits from all over France, meet the Chefs of some of Chicagoland’s top
restaurants, and enjoy French music and entertainment. Because Passport to France is, at
its core, a fundraiser, guests are also encouraged to bid on trips to France and around Europe,
luxury items, house wares and more in our event’s silent auction.
Your Passport to France Evening Includes:
Fine French cuisine served by some of Chicago’s top Chefs!
Pastries, chocolates, ice cream and more for the sweeter French tooth
Tastings of French wines and spirits, including the 2011 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau

The chance to win a trip for two to anywhere in Europe, a week-long stay in Paris, Chicago weekend getaways and more in our silent auction
